I am a Maine native living in Brunswick; a mother and grandmother. I love living and painting in Maine. The ocean, skies, seasonal colors, animals, birds, farms and the many other beautiful sights provide continuous sources of inspiration for my work. My interest in art began in childhood when I often drew animals, birds and people. I am very happily engaged in painting with pastels, acrylics and oils. I try to paint every day. For me, the painting process is calming and centering. I am thrilled when one of my paintings finds a home. I am a member of the Pastel Society of Maine; Sebascodegan Artists and the Harlow Gallery.
