I love the transparency and fluidness of watercolor and the discovery of patterns, shapes and colors.  I paint primarily botanical watercolors, but also work in graphite and pen and ink. I have always been drawn to detail and enjoy subtleties in color, differences and similarities in shape, and variation in line. I try to capture the beauty and grace that are inherent in plants and nature while giving each subject its own particular identity.


I majored in art and went on to receive a PhD in Communicative Disorders/Learning Disabilities.  I have taught in public and private schools and University settings.  Throughout my professional career I have enjoyed and used my art background. I am a member in the American Society of Botanical Arts, The North Shore Art League (Winnetka, IL), the Chicago Art Institute, and the Milwaukee Art Museum, Milwaukee, WI.
