I painted on location in all 50 states of the USA! I work in pastels for most of my outdoor paintings.

SOLD This is an island near the New Hampshire border in the Connecticut River (with Vermont in the background). And another tiny floating grass island in the foreground which kept moving all around during my lovely afternoon painting on the river.
I am a pastel painter working in the studio as well as en plein air.
My work is colorful and hopeful and focused on the landscape. I love to stand out in a field and make a painting that expresses my feelings of and reactions to that time and place. I can think of no better goal than what Georgia O’Keeffe said: …”filling a space in a beautiful way.” I hope viewers will pause in front of my landscape paintings and see common sights in a new way.
My work is in collections world wide. I hold signature memberships in International Plein Air Painters and Landscape Artists International. I am a member of Pastel Society of America, Southern Vermont Art Center and Vermont Pastel Society. My work has been exhibited for over 35 years including 11 one-woman shows.
