Essex Fells, New Jersey, USA
1965 Red Mustang, Side Door
I attribute my early love of art to my Belgian grandmother, whose impressionist painting style and encouragement resonates with me still.
After graduating from Georgetown University with a degree in marketing, I attended Pratt Institute’s School of Art and Design in NYC where I earned a MS in Package Design. I worked for several years as an art director and a freelance artist.
I took up painting again in my 30’ s and have been painting ever since then! Whether it is to capture the effect of light filtering through trees or the sun reflecting off a car, I become completely absorbed in trying to render, with great detail, the image through paint. I love color and the passing effects of light and shadow, as reflected in my latest series: CARS. I feel quite nostalgic when I paint these beautiful, old cars.
My work has been displayed in a variety of venues, most recently at the Ceres Art Gallery in NYC, the Montclair Art Museum, and the Phillips Lighting Corporation in Somerset, NJ.
