About me

My passion is painting in watercolor! I paint from photographs that I've taken on my travels, and on occasion, from my kayak. In rare instances, I will hear myself say out loud "Wow!" That's when I know I need to paint it. My favorite subjects are flowers and animals. I am an award winning Bucks County artist living in Perkasie, Pa. I compete in local, state and international juried and non-juried shows.

 

I've also painted acrylic murals for yoga studios, and private homes. I donated painted furniture to the American Cancer Society, and have  proceeds from my paintings go to the Wounded Warrior Project, high school and college art scholarships, art leagues, Philadanco, and PAWS in Philadelphia.

Jewelry is another passion because I enjoy working with semi-precious stones, pearls and Swarovski crystal. I make malas, some with lava beads that can be used with essential oils. Most of my necklaces, earrings, and bracelets are one of a kind. Warning: I can't be held responsible for any positive consequences that may happen, due to your fabulous appearance when wearing my jewelry. That's on you! Enjoy.

As I paint or create jewelry, my rescued Rottweiler Leo is with me, all 140 lbs. next to my feet. My rescued tuxedo cat Seachi can always be found close by too. I truly feel as though they have rescued me as well.
