About the Artist


Art has been a lifelong interest. In 2004, after raising a large family, and a career as a Clinical Psychologist, I began painting seriously, and dividing my time between New York and Nantucket.

Themes and images in my work are drawn from nature, and often evoke the calm, meditative emotional state that an unspoiled natural environment can generate. Many of my paintings, abstractions as well as landscapes, reflect Nantucket’s distinctive light and color. I became a member of the Artists Association of Nantucket (AAN) in 2006.

I have served on the AAN Board since 2008, and also on the Advisory Board of the Fountain Gallery, a cooperative gallery in Manhattan that shows the work of artists with mental illness.

I have studied painting at The Art Students League in New York, at the Artists Association of Nantucket, The Nantucket School of Art and Design, as well as with Ann Sutherland, David Lazarus, Robert McKee, Sherre Wilson Liljegren and Ken Layman—also on Nantucket.

My work is exhibited at the Cecilia and Seward Johnson Gallery and the Old Spouter Gallery, both on Nantucket.
