I have spent the last decade documenting landscapes and seascapes from around the country, all the way from California to my home here in New England. My style tends toward tonalism as I seek to distill the elements of the landscape to their simplest forms. Everywhere I go I see stories in the landscape, and I strive to find ways to tell that story through my work. I live and work in Rhode Island with my husband and our three children by my side. I have been exhibiting in New England since 2008, and my paintings are included in private collections around the world including across the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, and Japan.
