steady stream of visitors came to the Friday night exhibit opening. It
was a fun evening and the 21 chosen state paintings look
great on the walls; very accessible for viewing through the windows on Main Street - a pedestrian-busy sidewalk, night and day. Thanks for all the favorable comments left in the guest book.

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.
