Earliest beginnings started at the Baum School of Art in Allentown, PA under the tutelage of Dr. Walter E. Baum. As an artist she’s worked in many mediums but as a self taught watercolorist it became her first love. Since her earliest years were spent as a oil painter she easily slid into the world of acrylics which she renders both as watercolors on paper or on canvas. She prefers a variety of paper, boards or canvas to keep her subjects exciting and maybe a bit out of the range of the ordinary – never too real, never too abstract. Though she prefers landscapes, she also does many people-scapes….each subject determines its own medium or surface. Her watercolor and acrylics have collected gold medals, numerous awards and accolades in regional, national, and international shows.
She is a signature member of the American Watercolor Society (AWS) since 1972, National Watercolor Society (NWS), along with many other affiliations.
