Prior to 2007, I was teaching in Shrewsbury, Massachusetts and living in Worcester, MA. During my twelve years there, I had the good fortune to attend classes at the Worcester Art Museum. This was a rich and rewarding experience where I saw my pastel style take shape and my work make strides.

Since retirement in 2007 and moving home to Maine, I have worked at developing an art career, primarily painting with pastels. To date my artwork has been accepted into juried shows and I have won a number of awards for my pastels. My pastels can be seen online and in Art Space Gallery in Rockland, Maine. My hand made books have been exhibited in juried shows in Maine. I have also shown my work at the Betts Gallery in Belfast and at Harmon’s and Barton’s Gallery in Portland.
