From pen and paper...to paint and brush

My education took me from Bates College in Maine to the Museum School of Art, to Brown University where I was able to participate in an exchange program with the Rhode Island School of Design.  I was torn between my passion for writing, and my love of studio art.  The solution was a dual major that opened up both worlds to me.

Writing became my profession, but art remained my dream. In the past 2 years, I've picked up the brush again and am prolifically painting, as if making up for lost time. I'm joining art associations and  entering exhibits. I'm exploring. I'm growing. I'm ecstatic! I hope you feel that excitement in my work.
