"I began my art training at Northwestern Connecticut Community College and went on to earn a BFA Degree from the University of Massachusetts. Although I continued to draw and paint in various media throughout my life, much of my creative energies were concentrated on raising three children and teaching high school special education and history. Although I had tried watercolor painting before it is only recently that it exploded and consumed my artistic fervor. Because line has always excited and fascinated me, I combine black pen and ink lines with shapes and planes created with watercolor. Sometimes the colors follow the lines, sometimes they don't. This struggle between line and shape is at the center of my work."
