I have loved animals all my life…everything
from hamsters to horses.
And I have loved art all my life…everything
from watercolor to weaving. After nearly three decades as a psychologist,
who always dabbled in animal art on the side, I have finally given
myself over to pursuing my muses and my pets full-time. What you
see on this website is a labor of love.
My training as an artist has come in bits and pieces. As a child,
I was always the artist in the class. I was the art editor of my
high school yearbook. In college I experimented in classes both
in studio art and in art history. More recently, I have taken classes
in drawing, illustration, collage, watercolor, weaving, and oil
painting at the New Art Center in Newton, Massachusetts, and at
the Cambridge Center for Adult Education. I have also taken semi-private
lessons with master painter Marian Dioguardi (mariandioguardi.com),
and I am currently in a critique group with her.
