When I am not busy with guests at our B&B or playing with the
goats and chickens I get a chance to paint. As you can imagine,
inspiration for most of my work is found close to home…historic
sites, farms, animals, my neighbors and small local towns are
often the subjects of my paintings.
I paint with acrylics, usually on canvas and sometimes in
miniature. The best description for my art, I suppose is, gentle,
and usually, especially with the animal paintings, humorous.
My paintings are shown in a number of places locally as well as
at some regional shows, at the Trails and Trees Studio Tour, at
my studio and at our bed and breakfast, Cider Mill House.
I have received a few awards, belong to a few societies, but what
is most rewarding and important to me, is that moment when one
of my paintings makes a connection with a viewer.
I hope you will find something on this site that speaks to you too.
