Painting with a crisp, clean Pop Art sensibility, I draw my art from my sketchpads full of special Maine places I’ve visited. The palette reflects the feelings I have from those places.
Challenging myself to simplify the complex shapes I find in nature, I break them down to their essence through color and form. I use flat, bold imagery and work with the visual effects of color relationships to achieve space and depth.
Growing up in Bucks County, PA, an area that shares with Maine a rich artistic history and community, I was inspired by my mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, all artists.
I graduated from George School, a Quaker school in Newtown, PA, and majored in Fine Art at Trinity College, Hartford, CT. I studied illustration at Parson’s School of Design.
I live in Yarmouth, ME, with my husband Kevin. We have two sons Griffin 23 and Duncan 20. We have lived in Maine for 18 years, with many more to come.
