“There is a strong shadow where there is much light.” –Goethe
The context for this quote exalted nature, feelings and humanity and reflects the focus of my work
currently. I am grateful and excited to paint every day because of the energy I get from noticing beauty
all around: dog walks, sunny days, dune hikes and travels near and far. I aim to capture the contrast
between light and shadow in the landscape in oils because of the ability to layer with color and create
texture and visual interest.
I have enjoyed a lifelong interest in art and creativity. Most recently I have affiliated with the North
Shore Art League in Winnetka, IL as former board president, in workshops, classes and exhibitions. I
have been represented in regional juried shows and have been a member of Oil and Water Studio, in
Hubbard Woods, IL for over 10 years. When not there I paint in my southwestern Michigan studio.
