About me


Although I unintentionally stepped into my artist role while working in telecommunications in London in the late 1990’s, (as nicely described by Susan Pevaroff Berschler in The Philadelphia Inquirer) by 2000 I was working hard to paint what I saw around me, trying to replicate objects as closely as possible to ‘real-life’.


Here I am in 2000 exploring a ‘still-life’ in oils. (I still have
that chest of drawers, paint blobs and all…)

Then the first of my little monsters arrived, and things changed. And I’m not just talking about diapers – gone was the freedom to spend hours in my studio fiddling with oil paint – not to mention the waft of paint-thinner threatening my baby and husband to evacuate our home – or spending the day visiting local galleries and attending lectures.

Nope. I was now a busy mom.

But I loved messing around with color and canvasses, and it wasn’t long before I had shifted to acrylics and painting goofy little pictures for my daughter’s room, a step that set me on my whimsical path.

And when local moms began to ask me for paintings for their kids, it was only a hop, skip and a jump to expanding my series and ideas, which to my delight have been accepted and enjoyed by buyers from around the world, adorning walls in homes, hospitals, corporate-lobbies, and restaurants.

I couldn’t have been luckier, or more grateful to the many wonderful folks who enjoy my work. Thanks to all of you.
