From the artist:
A Speech and Language Pathologist by profession, I took up photography when I was a Traveling Therapist. When I settled in Newmarket, NH in 1997, my sisters and I began taking watercolor classes through the Seacoast Artist Association as a Wednesday night get-together. My sisters are no longer as active in painting, but I was hooked. Through the years, I've taken Life Drawing and watercolor painting classes at the NH Art Institute in Manchester, watercolor workshops at Mohegan Island, St. Suliac, France and Lesbos Island, Greece with Doris Rice. I've taken workshops and classes with Dustin Knight, Frank Webb and Mel Stabin. Each class has helped me hone in my skills in the area of watercolor.
I continue to depend on my camera at home and while traveling to capture people, places and events to use in future paintingsThere is so much to learn about in every medium that makes it so enjoyable. The beauty of art is not just the beauty of art, but the reminder of when, where and how it was created. I continue to be a member of the Seacoast Artist Association, Chair of the Scholarship Committee. When we contribute to our youth, we are securing a continuation of the arts for the future.
