I grew up in Charlton, a rural community in Massachusetts. The attic in my home held treasures of canvas painted by Belle Vesey, my grandmother who passed away before I was born. The canvases were portraits and scenes of Boston and Concord in the Spring. The landscapes evoked my imagination of a grand lady in Victorian dress painting in the garden.
I am mainly self-taught but an avid workshop participant, always wanting to learn and grow. I completed the Famous Artist School course out of Westport, Connecticut, majoring in portraits.
I now reside in Florida with my husband Mickey, enjoying the weather, flowers, grandchildren, church and many painting groups.
