My love of nature began as a child growing up in culturally rich Philadelphia, PA. There, I studied a variety of art media and the sciences, and as an adult, I combined two of my passions – Art and Nature - in both my career as a biology teacher of 36 years and as a watercolor artist.
Now as a retired teacher and full time artist, I work exclusively in watercolors, using their wonderful translucent qualities to great advantage. Continuing my love of rich color that I achieved in the oil paintings of my youth, my watercolors are stunningly vibrant and vivid.
Florida remains my favorite place of inspiration. I focus on exotic flowers, seashells, shore birds, sea life, and delightful scenes of families making memories on the beach. I also paint still life, landscapes, and abstracts, and developed a distinctive rainbow style in my animal and sports series.
