Living “artfully” fuels my wellbeing. Seeking, creating, and sharing beauty is my strategy for everyday living; it inspires me as a visual artist working in photography and mixed media.

With my camera I enjoy capturing a “sense of place” by weaving a narrative that focuses on the discovery of “off the grid“ locations.

I am especially drawn to the details. These are the mini moments that our eyes often do not see.

My mixed media work is deeply influenced by many years of working in commercial architectural design with global leader, Herman Miller. I am drawn to bold forms, sculptural elements, and graphic composition. 

I am a lifelong champion of arts and culture. After a rich career in business development in commercial architectural design I am engaged with several arts organizations including the Experimental Group, Rockport Art Association Museum (RAAM), Rockport, MA; Rocky Neck Art Colony, Gloucester, MA; Newburyport Art Association, Newburyport, MA; The Society for the Encouragement of the Arts (seARTS), Gloucester, MA. Additionally, I have served on multiple boards, consulted with the Peabody Essex Museum, MA, and earned an advanced certificate in Fundraising Management from Boston University. I channeled my business leadership into my role as the executive director of the Marblehead Arts Association, Marblehead, MA, before redirecting my energy in pursuit of my own artistic path.

The creative process is a cocktail of instinct, skill, culture and a highly creative feverishness.
