Art has always been an important part of my life, so I was very fortunate to be able to share that interest as a middle school art teacher in the Braintree Public Schools for 32 years.
With retirement and a bit more time to enjoy all that this beautiful town has to offer, my paintings are often attempts to capture some of that local flavor. Though scenics are beautiful and inspiring, another favorite subject is the people within those spaces. While taking walks on the beach, it’s so interesting to see how people create their own private space in such an open environment – whether it’s children playing in the water, someone engrossed in a book while hundreds of others are all around, or people walking together in the shallow water sharing their lives with each other.
As a member of the Hull Artists group and Gallery Nantasket, I am also inspired by the work of my fellow artists and look forward to continued learning, experimenting, and sharing ideas.
My artwork has been exhibited in the South Shore Art Center, the Thayer Academy Art Gallery, the Thayer Public Library, the Cohasset Art Festival, the Nantasket Hotel and Resort, the Hingham Public Library, the Hull Town Hall and the Braintree Community Arts Center.
