Artist Bio and Statement
“Follow your bliss. If you do follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while waiting for you, and the life you ought to be living is the one you are living. "- Joseph Campbell
The journey to becoming an artist was once something that felt completely out of reach. Like many creative people, I ended up doing what I love for work later in life, and now I no longer dream of becoming, I know that I am, and always have been and artist. It feels like returning home after a long trip. And art is not only something that I do, but it's part of each and every day.
I'm fortunate to be able to paint, sell work and illustrate children's books.
I'm also a wife, mom, grandmother and dog mom to my rescue lab Skipper. I grew up in the Merrimack Valley area in Massachusetts and now call Amesbury, Massachusetts my home city.
