New England artist that captures the spirit and beauty in North American wildlife from animals to flowers to Christmas trees.
I learned how to paint at a very young age and never stopped. I drew in charcoal and pen and ink, until I found the love of painting. My artists of inspiration have been Georgia O'Keefe, Vincent van Gogh, and current watercolor and pattern surface designer, Bonnie Christine. I have also been inspired by my mother and grandmother's flower gardens that hey kept.
