My paintings are best described as contemporary landscape or contemporary abstract. Passion for color and texture are what excite me about painting. I am informed by my musical knowledge; gradations of tone color, balance, tension and release, and rhythm all play into how I compose a painting. Painting allows me to stop time, to make choices in slow motion, and to experience the art of composing in a whole new way

I try to incorporate marks that allude to the structure of the piece and that give some architecture to the image. Layering paint is also an important to my process. I will activate the blank canvas with bold strokes that give me a structure to play upon. I often view painting as music unwinding itself and coming to a visual conclusion.


I am a painter and musician. Born in NYC and studied art at the High School of Art and Design in Manhattan, then moved to Maine where I studied flute at the University of Southern Maine. I went Switzerland and studied flute and piano with master muscians Art Lande and Marianne Stucki. I lived there for 12 years and then returned to the USA to live in Morgantown, WV. I had intended to return to Maine, but I decided to stay in WV and I am glad I did! My painting studio is in my home and I am able to paint and practise music on a daily basis. My livliehood is art and music, and I am so grateful to Tamarack for the support.
