Artist / Personal Statement
Art has always been at the center of my life. As a child I was drawn to color and shape and could get lost for hours in the making of my own imaginary worlds. In one form or another, I've been a professional artist all my life. In the seventies I lived in France and Italy showing my work in a number of galleries. Later back in the US, I worked as Graphics Editor for a daily newspaper and eventually started my own graphic design company based in Lexington, Massachusetts.
I am primarily a studio artist. While some of my inspiration comes from the world around us, the majority comes from within. My focus is the longing of the human heart and my passion is to give voice to what cannot be said in words - to reveal what cannot be seen with the eye, but with the heart. I work primarily in soft pastel.
