About the artist
Raised in New Jersey, I moved to Ohio in the mid 80s with my husband and two sons.
I did not have formal art training. While in high school I painted. I took some art classes in junior college. After my sons were raised, my sister gave me paints and brushes as a gift and told me to start painting again. I took various classes at Kent State and at Akron University’s adult education division.
I presently take private lessons from Christopher Leeper, a professional artist in Canfield, OH.
My husband has been very supportive of my painting. He set up a studio for me, and he builds frames for most of my work. He also serves as my “in house critic”.
I paint in a representational style. My subjects usually are landscapes, historic buildings, still life, and portraits. I have had commissions for paintings of people’s homes, pets, and even long vanished buildings.
I usually work in oil or acrylics on canvas or board. I also work in watercolor, pencil, and have done some work with micro pen and colored pencil.
If you have questions or are interested in purchasing or commissioning a painting, please send me a message.
