I am primarily a self-taught artist born in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York and now living in Nashua New Hampshire. I have had some training and have also learned techniques from other artists I have known. Living and traveling in different areas of the country, I have found beauty everywhere. For the thirty plus years that I have been painting, I’ve used oils, watercolors and most recently, acrylics. The inspiration for my paintings comes from the beautiful scenery that is all around us. I enjoy bringing a comforting and familiar feeling to the viewer – to bring back a memory.I thank my mother and grandfather for this inherited artistic talent and also thank my family and friends for the encouragement and motivation they’ve given me and hope to share the world I see through my paintings with them, and those I have not yet met.
