Statement

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.
