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.
