Thank you for visiting me here at my online Studio.

As a classically trained Artist, the study of Art History informs my work. Compositions underlying the great paintings of the Old Masters is the critical framework on which I design my Art. Brilliantly vibrant colors of nature inspire my paintings, as do the textures of fabrics, flowers and fur.

Northport Harbor 24x36" Gallery Wrapped. Mixed Media Canvas.

“Northport Harbor” 24×36″ Gallery Wrapped. Mixed Media Canvas.


This is my statement of what this Landmark means to me which will be presented along with my Mixed Media Painting at the Long Island Landmarks show.

“Northport was a destination for me for the many years I was a single parent, raising my sons, hoping for that idyllic life the town visually offers. I worked hard and saved for that dream, finally buying my own home in my favorite town. And then a surprise happened. I met Dave, he loved what I loved. Twenty years ago we married with great joy, with a summer sunset across the water, surrounded by boats, friends and family and as we like to say, we took the plunge at the end of the dock in Northport Harbor.”
