About the Artist
My love of art began in kindergarten and was nurtured by family artists. Growing up in New York, I frequented all of the famous and small museums. Although I attended Hofstra University, my artistic career actually began in the exciting make-up and hair industry where I studied the basics of color and design. Working with “living canvases” that came in all shapes, colors, and sizes was a significant challenge… and the feedback was immediate.
Soon I began applying the same concepts to paper, producing my early watercolor paintings. This led to experimentation in different media and study with a several prominent artists in California.
Today, I enjoys painting a variety of subjects using mainly watercolor and acrylics. Over the past several years I have found rendering flowers in bright acrylic colors to be especially fulfilling.
I am an active member of the Mission Viejo Cultural Arts Committee, volunteering many hours to arts related events. I have served as a project leader for children's art at annual Arts Alive Festival and am past President of the Saddleback Art League.
