I am originally from Massachusetts and grew up in a beautiful town 30 miles north of Boston, now lining in North Port, Florida. My interest in the arts started at a very young age, and by the time I was 13 and a freshman at Billerica Memorial High School I decided that being an artist was going to be my career of choice. I had some wonderful mentors in High School who have always encouraged my creative side and in my senior year was voted most artistic in our yearbook and I have been Illustrating portraits of various subjects for well over 20 years.




I attended the Art Institute of Boston in 1984 and studied Illustration with a minor in Graphic Design, hoping to become a successful Magazine Illustrator back then, my artistic path took me down the road of printing and mechanical drawing for a while. I worked at various printing companies from 1984 to 1997. Even though my path as an artist seemed to change to graphic design it has never stopped my passion to draw and illustrate the subjects that I loves to concentrate on which are people, wildlife and pets.

In 1997 with the help of AOL I met and married the most wonderful man in the world. I lived there for eight fantastic years and loved the vast amount of culture, arts, nature, and the fabulous countryside of Great Britian. Gosport is a great town with a temendous amount of Naval history which I found very fascinating. I exhibited my art work for an exhibition about the new millenium and the concerns we as people may have for the future. Then in 2005 we began our new journey and life here in the US and have been enjoying the beauty of Florida living, culture, wildlife and fabolous scenery that only the Gulf Coast of Florida can give to you each and every day.

Today my passion for animals and nature has taken me to create color and graphite pencil drawings of some of my most favorite subjects. I will draw from the largest of wildlife creatures to the smallest of domestic pets. This has become my passion and interest of choice but still loves to do Portraits of people as well.
