After teaching visual art in Boston for 20 years, I recently left to pursue my own art and have found great joy and fulfillment. I live in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts, which is a thriving arts community and is surrounded by the Emerald Necklace, Frederick Law Olmstead’s beautifully designed parks and green spaces. The surroundings provide me with constant inspiration. I spend summers in Truro, MA which is another source of creative imagery for me. Since I finally have the time to devote my energies to art making, I am rediscovering my inner artistic wellspring. My wish is to communicate nature springing to life in my work, and to create visionary images that vibrate with the thrill of a new creation. May my work bring joy, humor as well as solace to the viewer.
