I have always been intrigued with the beauty of what lies under the surface of the ocean. Growing up in South Florida, I aspired to be a marine biologist. I took up photography and painting to capture the incredible undersea seascapes and tropical flora I saw around me. Told my passion was a better hobby than a career choice, I pursued a business degree at Boston College and enjoyed a 30 year career in sales management. Despite success in business, painting continually remained a passion. When my two boys started high school, I began classes at night to satisfy a deep need to create. Today I am still working, mothering and painting. In different ways, each of these aspects of my life brings me great joy and fulfillment.
My goal today is to memorialize the amazing places I've seen in my travels and capture the incredible beauty of the sea and marine life. I find water so calming and interesting to paint. I primarily use oils, acrylics, and alcohol inks, mixing mediums to take advantage of the unique qualities of each. My goal someday is to feature all of my waterworks in one gallery so that the viewer can feel our deep connection with water.
If you see something in my collections, don't hesitate to reach out to me. I do commissions throughout the year and work with photos you provide to create that special piece that celebrates a meaningful moment in your life!
