ABOUT


I've had a passion for creating art since childhood. Primarily self taught, my art is an organic process. I love nothing more than the alchemy of transforming materials into pieces that capture the beauty of nature. In my sculptures I balance form, texture and color. Inspired by the serenity of the coast I create large, one of a kind sculptures that reflect the wonder of the sea's most majestic creatures.

My early work was either paintings on a canvas or a sculpture. I enjoyed both but quickly worked to combine the two and explore the idea of a 3-D canvas. Through the years I've developed a way to create large yet lightweight art that has the versatility of canvas. The result is the truest expression of who I am as an artist. Each piece is an original work of art, handmade, painted, signed, named and dated. 

I grew up in Connecticut and now reside in Hingham, Massachusetts with my husband, two children and two labs. We love exploring New England from the Cape and Nantucket to the beautiful coast of Maine.
