I grew up in Newport, RI and have lived in Old Town Alexandra, Pawleys Island, SC and currently reside in Delray Beach, FL. Each of these places was on a body of water, which is where I am happiest. I started using watercolor and worked into acrylics. I have been painting steadily for over 12 years and continue to take classes regularly. I come from a very artistic family. My aunt painted and sold watercolors in NC. My Brother Bill, an extremely accomplished watercolorist, has won many shows, and is an Associate Member in the National Watercolor Society. All my artwork is original.
