'The line between my life and my art has become a distinction without a perceptible difference. My pastel paintings are representational but symbolism, abstraction, and pattern repetition are constantly in the frame whether I am looking at my daily life or a blank canvas.”

My work has been accepted into many national and international exhibits and has won numerous awards. I am proud to be a Master Circle Recipient in the International Association of Pastel Societies, elected Member of the American Artist Professional League, Signature Member of Connecticut Pastel Society, Signature Member of the Pastel Society of America, Artist Member of Salmagundi Club, Academic Artist and Audubon Artist Associations and New Haven Paint and Clay Club where my work is part of their permanent collection.  I am currently serving as Vice President of the Connecticut Pastel Society.

My artwork is for sale and I welcome commissions.

Sizes of artwork listed are image only.    Paintings are professionally framed with museum quality glass.
