Awareness and creativity are my lifeline, my security. When all else seems chaotic and confusing, they bring me contentedness and peace. My creative work allows me to float among the images that sustain my compassion and love. It is the most authentic form of communication for me because it develops slowly and truthfully from deep within my heart. Artwork is a meaningful way for me to let go of something beautiful and hold onto it at the same time. It improves the quality of my life.
I graduated in 1979 from Syracuse University with a BS in nursing. I have always enjoyed writing, drawing and photography, which led me to complete a MEd program in arts and learning. My husband and I raised our four grown children on a small farm north of Boston, and continue to live there, surrounded by dogs, cats, horses and chickens.
