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.

September, 2014

When I don’t have an original idea, I copy for I think drawing is ever so important in developing a painting.   I can draw better than I can paint.     Further I find, if I work within a specific theme, creating different moods, my creativity seems to flow.    Last year I concentrated on waves.  This year I just finished 4-orchid paintings for the 10/11 Show and I am currently working on an exhibit of clowns and balloons for a February Art Thursday show to be called “Balloon Blast”.  Also I am striving to develop something for an Art Thursday show to be called “Spring Showers bring Great Flowers.   So flowers are on my list.  So painting something for the community is what drive me.
