I am intrigued by and love to capture Life, Light and Color as designed by The Great Artist in this limitlessly beautiful world which He has created for us.

__________________________________________________________________________________

As far back as I can remember, I was always drawing, sketching or doodling.

Although originally from the States, our Dad was in the US Air Force, which meant we travelled quite a bit. After he retired and I finished High School, I joined the Air Force as well and kept on travelling! I lived in Ireland since 1972, with my husband of over 30 years and have 3 grown children. After my husband's retirement, we came back to the States in 2006 and have been living in Asbury NJ since 2007.

I am entirely self-taught artist, and feel most at home with charcoal/graphite, watercolor, gouache, pastels and computer graphics. I am also very much into photography (and am one of the photographers on www.paradisal.ca) and my camera was never far away when we travelled Europe.

I mostly exhibit in group exhibitions and have been in competitions in Ireland and the US including:

  • Moyglare Equine Art Competition - Kildare, Ireland
  • Royal Hibernian Academy Annual Exhibition- National Gallery, Dublin Ireland
  • National Portrait Exhbition, Arnotts, Dublin Ireland
  • Madame LeWorthy's Yearly Exhibition- Drogheda, Ireland
  • Vienna Arts Society, 2005 Treasury of Art, Vienna, Virginia.

I do photo retouching and have been commissioned to do portraits/paintings of people, landscapes and animals for public and private collections in Ireland, US and Canada.
