I have lived in Bath Maine for 35 years working and raising a family. As a child I made art and continued into college, painting and drawing and exploring all facets of the visual process. I graduated from USM and taught art and library studies in the Bath schools until this past spring. I also ran a school garden that taught organic agricultural practices to children in the Bath area. Now I work at home in my studio. Most recently I have begun to explore landscapes in acrylics. I find I can express my interest in color and light while painting the natural world around me. I like to paint large paintings and expand on the idea of scale.
