I have been working with pastels for approximately 30 years. My rhythmic and balanced compositions reflect the tranquility of the moment. Favorite places of inspiration include the Eastern Shore of Maryland, the New Jersey Shore, the Brandywine River Valley, Hudson, New York and Maine. Past trips to Ireland, France and Italy have energized my work. Pastel is my primary medium and its immediacy and vibrant colors convey, joy, wonderment or peace. I apply my pastels to a panel that a under painted with warm orange, peach and purple acrylics which allow the paintings to glow. The acrylic underpainting is then coated with a pumice mixture to provider rich textures. After raising my family and leaving a position in arts administration, I am now able to pursue my passion for pastels full time. Now living in Rose Valley, PA with my husband, I paint at Heron Crest Studios in Aston, PA where I am open by appointment throughout the year.
