Maine artist passionate about photography, jewelry and vintage. I had my first solo fine art photography exhibit, Bold Blossoms, this past summer at SLA Arts in Portland, Maine.
Retired art educator. I have a BA from Douglass College, Rutgers, The State University, and an MA from Southern Connecticut State University. My major academic emphasis was art education, ceramics, crafts, and art history and appreciation. Traveling and having the time to pursue my artistic ideas is extremely rewarding to me.
Married for 48years, my husband and I love to travel. We especially enjoyed Paris and Italy. We have 3 adult children, 7 precious grandchildren and two adorable Ragdoll cats.
My passion for photography has been with me since I was a very young girl with my first Brownie camera. Recording the beauty I see for over 50 years, is my greatest joy. A college students in the 60's, I was fortunate to be part of the NYC Op Art, and Pop Art movements. I love experimentation and exploration.
I am a life long learner who greets everyday with a "what can I make today" attitude..so much to share...so little time. Nature, travel, typography, digitally altered photography, and abstraction.
compose a portfolio that is huge and diverse, I look forward to sharing it with you.
