Dixmont, ME

I love what I do... and what I do full time is paint. I am captivated by color and light! I am a self-taught artist living and working in Dixmont, Maine. I worked as a teacher of the deaf and speech/language therapist in the public schools for 19 years. In 2001, I changed careers and began painting. I work in both soft pastels and oils. My inspiration comes from the colors I see around me and the simple beauty found in everyday objects. I try to infuse each piece with color and light. Art is an intimate experience for the creator and the viewer, and whether still life, animals or landscapes, I prefer an intimate perspective.
