I recently became a Signature Artist member of the Genesee Valley Plein Air Painters. I show and sell my paintings through several galleries in the Rochester NY area.
I enjoyed a three decade career as an art educator in the Greece Central School District. I retired from teaching in 2017 to become a full-time painter. Since then, I have moved my studio to The Hungerford Building in downtown Rochester, joined the GVPAP, and the "Working with Wax" group of encaustic painters in Rochester, NY. I traveled to the Burren College of Art in Ireland to further explore encaustic wax painting. I am a part time art instructor at The Mill Arts Center and Gallery in Honeoye Falls, and I provide private art lessons in my studio, as my schedule allows.
