I have loved art all my life. As a child (the youngest in a large Italian family) my sister, Margie, would bring me home “How to Draw” books. I am self taught. In 2004 my art became intense after my mother passed away. In 2007 my dear brother passed suddenly and the memories of our childhood became so dear to me…. especially the very few photos I had which were of us Trick or treating. I painted feverishly and ended up with so much artwork in my studio I needed to sell it. Surprisingly to me it sold quickly. My customers inspired me on. I continued to study and paint. Part of my great love has been the old historic homes which I have enjoyed incorporating into my autumn scenes. I am also a Radiologic Technologist so I have a great love for the human body and bones. Seeing the same patterns in the body as are in nature I began my Landscape Anatomy series and was delighted to be published for years on the cover of the ASRT magazine. Also I Love painting for medical facilities nationwide including the Pentagon. My love for blowing leaves and autumn winds, old homes and bones have kept me excited to put the colors on canvas. I thank God for this gift because with it He has truly healed my soul in so many ways. On canvas the shadows of life make the light shine so much more intense. I am always here and always painting. I would love to hear from you.
