From the Artist:
I first started painting as a young child in an after school class and continued through high school, along with art courses offered through my school. I have always loved the serenity of painting and the way one can express themselves through the use of color and texture. My love of both art and the outdoors led me to a career in Landscape Architecture. I graduated from Penn State in 1982 with a Bachelor's Degree in Landscape Architecture and subsequently moved to Vermont where I had spent many summer vacations on the lake in Charlotte with my family. I have enjoyed a long and varied career here in the Champlain Valley and have also had the pleasure of raising a family here. I have been working at Wagner Hodgson Landscape Architecture for the past 17 years and spend my weekends painting.
Much of my inspiration comes from the bucolic Vermont landscape around me. I enjoy photographing scenes that have a quality of light, depth of color, or an engaging cloud filled sky. There is such a feeling of joy that comes with capturing those moods and moments with paint. I enjoy working in both acrylic and watercolor as they each lend specific qualities to a painting. I currently sell my pieces at local craft fairs and also create unique works of art for private sale. I am also happy to sell matted prints and greeting cards upon request.
Please email or call me if you have any interest.
I am very pleased to be given the opportunity to show my work at the Shelburne Town Offices this month.
