I like to think that I have been an artist since the age of two when, to my parents’ dismay, I drew pumpkins on my bedroom walls. After college, I went on to teach high school art on Long Island for 32 years. It was the best of both worlds, allowing me to share my knowledge and love of art in the classroom and to paint and exhibit during the summers.
Having retired to Sarasota, I now am thoroughly enjoying teaching drawing and watercolor with the Adult Continuing Enrichment program. Although fluent in a variety of media, my favorite is watercolor. I love its transparency and its unpredictability, especially in my florals and landscapes. Capturing the effects of light and shadow is my passion.
I have also become involved in two wonderful watercolor associations, Florida Suncoast Watercolor Society and Florida Watercolor Society. I exhibit regularly, have achieved Signature status, have worked on the boards of both, and served as FWS President in 2011 and FSWS President in 2013.
