About Me

A multi-medium aging artist and an underwater photographer, I retired from Florida to live on the beach in St. Croix, Virgin Islands. I am delighted with the island’s historic architecture, sunny skies, blue seas, and wonderful reefs. So now my days are full of gardening, painting, diving and snorkeling.

Although I primarily paint in watercolors, I recently dabbled in acrylics and apprenticed with some experienced mural painters. My latest efforts can be seen at St. Patrick's school and Bernie’s, both in Frederiksted. As an avid member of the Palletteers, I paint plein air weekly at different island locations. I also attend water-media workshops, both locally and abroad.

I have donated many of my paintings to local charities and my artwork has been exhibited at many island locations. I hope you enjoy the artwork and phtographs generated here in my new-found paradise. Namasté.

November 9, 2013

November, the beginning of the holiday season, is always the time of year when I feel really inspired. New ideas pop up, collaborations can be on the horizon, and I seem to look at my art-making with fresh eyes. To get the most out of this feeling when I am in the studio, I always try to be prepared and stocked up on my go-to materials so that nothing will slow me down. Perhaps it is just another reason to spend money and blow my budget, but love searching out a new technique.   New art products are incredible and plentiful.   This piece finished off with pastels.
