I have made a career in New Hampshire’s arts and nonprofit fields since graduating from Plymouth State College as an Art Education/Art History major, and have been an active member of the North Country community for the past 4 decades, and have recently retired after 21 years as a Senior Philanthropy Advisor at New Hampshire Charitable Foundation. I live in the Mount Washington Valley of NH.
For a decade after college, I was a self-employed fiber artist whose landscape wall hangings sold in galleries and juried shows, and were commissioned by collectors throughout New England. For the past 33 years, I worked professionally in three North Country non-profits while creating art in my free time.
I began painting intensively in 2006, inspired by artists such as the Canadian Group of Seven, Emily Carr, and Maine artists Edward Hopper and Fairfield Porter, and many contemporary painters. I paint outdoors in locations in NH’s Lakes and White Mountains and off the coast of Maine, as well as in the studio from my own photos, imagination, and memory.
My work has been exhibited in a number of group and solo shows and is included in several private and corporate collections. My paintings can be found at WREN’s Local Works Gallery in Bethlehem, NH.
