I have loved being creative since I was old enough to hold a crayon! As a young adult I studied Stained Glass construction and fulfilled large commissions in glass for doors, windows, and cabinets. In my thirties I changed my medium to oil painting, which was more portable! I studied at Monserrat School of Art (Beverly , Mass.) , at the Guild of Boston Artist Gammel Studios with Robert Cormier in Boston and en plain air with David Curtis in Gloucester & Essex, Mass. I also took many workshops. My favorite one was with John Wilson, Katoomba NSW Australia.
