I was born in Cleveland, Ohio and now live and work in Bainbridge, Ohio.

I’ve always been a visual artist, although it took a long time for me to know it.  In kindergarten painting at the easel was my favorite activity.

In college at Oberlin a course caused me to see things 180 degrees differently and I took many art history classes.  However, art history wasn’t “serious academics” – so I didn’t take it seriously either.

Fast forward 38 years to an oil painting class and I became entranced, intrigued, enthralled, inspired, enamored, intimidated, intoxicated.  I fell in love and I haven’t been the same since.

I’ve been painting a little over six years now.  Every painting is a journey of feeling and expression.  I often paint with a palette knife.  I love lots of paint on the canvas, love the way the colors move and shift under the knife.  I try to capture light, motion and moments filled with emotion.  To my eye, the ordinary is extraordinary.

I have recently begun experimenting with dripping paint in layers.  Sometimes I add paint with a knife after the dripping; other times I pick up a brush to emphasize different shapes and colors.  Many of these paintings feature forests.

I have earned my living as a writer for over thirty-five years.  Words have always been my playthings.  But I can’t tell you how truly grateful I am to have traded them for tubes of paint and a doorway to the soul.
