Bio/Education & Experience: 

My natural talent for drawing started at an early age. In grade and high school I was in charge of all holiday decorations for the classrooms. I attended Traphagen School of

Fashion Design in New York City because I enjoyed designing and making clothes for

myself and family. While raising my three children in New Jersey, I was commissioned

to design and paint for local schools, churches and stores. When I moved to Miami, Fl.

I studied watercolor, plein-air painting at Fairchild Tropical Gardens. 

I am primarily self-taught in many different mediums,but my true love is working in

pen&ink and graphite. Fascinated by the amazing trees in Florida, I let my pen glide over Bristol paper to get the details of Banyan, Strangler Figs and Mangroves. With this medium I have won many awards.


I am a member of Barefoot Bay Artists’Guild, Sebastian River Art Club,  and Vero Beach Art Club.
