About Me



I  am supposed to be retired. I stopped teaching in the schools a few years            

ago, only to find myself busier than ever, keeping up with the high learning

curve that my new found medium of digital painting necessitates. Technology is

forever changing, but I love it



My son gave me my first computer with Painter 2 on it. I was delighted

at how easy and intuitive it was to use this program. About at the same

time, an artist friend started making hand made paper from local

vegetation, like banana leaves, flowers and grasses. I loved the

natural and recycled paper that she was producing, so naturally,

I started printing my digital images on this paper.


My island home inspires my images. St. Lucia is a place most people

of the world can only visit and fall in love with. I am lucky to live full

time in this peaceful paradise. It enriches my life with it's charm.

Everywhere I turn, there is a scene worthy of recording.


I still use the traditional art materials of oils, acrylics and watercolors,

as well as the fine crafts of jewelry and enameling. My degree was

obtained at State University of New York at Buffalo. I've traveled to many

places with my husband (US Marine Corps Major, retired) and we now

have settled in the tropics.



Our two children (Melanie & Tony, above) are artists,

living and working in CaliforniA




I would be delighted to hear your reaction to my work
