She has exhibited in juried shows including Ct Academy of Fine Arts, Mystic, Ct., New Haven Paint and Clay, New Haven, Ct, Madison Art Society, Madison, Ct, Firehouse Gallery, Milford, Ct., winning 1st place in the Milford Art Society-At the Table juried show and several awards of merit and honorable mentions.

Her paintings in acrylic and oil on canvas and aluminum range from impressionistic to abstract and are created from memories and imagination.  They portray the dreams and reality of life through color and hints of images. Her paintings transport you to places known and unknown.      

‘I use color as an important aspect of the way my work portrays the dreams and reality of life through images both real and imagined. I love the way nature portrays the darkest and brightest moments in life… the forcefulness and tranquility of water and the ever changing light and motion of all living things.  My painting explores our feelings about what we see, sometimes giving you just a hint of reality and letting your eye or your imagination fill in the rest.  I hope that my art evokes a feeling, a memory, a determination or encouragement and brings you peace.'
