Years ago, I began studying at the Woodstock School of Art. Looking for a right-brained activity, I desired a novel challenge; something that I thought would be difficult to master. I chose watercolor. Eventually, as I became more adept, I became highly motivated to contribute to, and to participate in the beauty of God’s world with paint. Last year, I liberated myself to the flow and chose to explore Abstraction. I observe a phenomenal world of sublime color, form, and raw light energy with the wonder and enthusiasm of an awakening infant. Abstraction is, for me, a remembering of primal beauty.

She was awarded degrees in Philosophy and Comparative Religion from Hunter College. After moving to Woodstock, she and her husband operated a country inn for twenty-five years. They then opened and currently operate The Dog House Gallery in Saugerties, NY, which serves to showcase local artists and their contemporary work.
