It is my belief that art is everywhere, especially in unnoticed details of life and our surroundings. My art is influenced by my lifelong experiences with premonitions, dreams, sightings, and spirituality. I'm a former Art Therapist with extensive training in psychotherapy, which is expressed in many of my emotional images. My art is eclectic and includes paintings, photography, digital art, and drawings.
My works reflect creative themes from my experience as a ballerina and my interests in opera, film, history, and conservation. I paint in acrylics in impressionist, realist and expressionist styles, and in the ‘60s & ‘70s pursued pop art and surrealism. My art work has been exhibited in New York, Philadelphia, and New Jersey.
I returned to painting after a 38 year break due to chronic illness and am currently in the process of writing a book based on my unusual experiences.
