I began painting in 1995 after moving to Virginia from Long Island. I have always loved the process……the physical application of the paint, whatever the medium, surface or tool I am using. Music was my creative outlet until I began painting. I have found that like studying voice, learning to paint is a slow and sometimes tedious process that is a gift in itself.

It is wonderful to love something and try to capture its essence. Watching the paint move on its own or with my prodding….the process of making a picture….that’s the reward. If I like the finished painting, it’s a bonus!
