“I began my career primarily as a still life painter, joining the Copley Society at the age of 26. In these early years I was influenced by the French painter Chardin and the painters of the Dutch School. The art of still life, with it's important lessons in light, composition and draftsmanship, provided a solid foundation for my later work as a portrait artist.
My transition to figurative work evolved slowly as I embarked on a course of self study which included the works of Boston School painters such as Benson, Tarbell, and Paxton. I was inspired by their classically rendered figures, carefully planned compositions, and their skill in creating atmosphere through light and shadow.
Today I maintain a studio and private gallery at my home in Norwell, Massachusetts where I paint portraits, figurative works, and still lifes.” Her commissioned works include posthumous portraits from photos and “ancestral portraits” from turn of the century photography.
