I was born in Providence R.I. and have lived in the smallest state my whole life. I began drawing as a young child, especially horses, which have continued to be a lifelong passion. At. Salve Regina College I majored in art with a concentration in painting. Continuing my education and love for art at R.I. College, I became life certified in elementary education and taught in several Catholic schools. I have two grown children, and currently live in Pascoag, R.I. with my husband George, and a white Samoyed named Bianca. I work part time for United Cerebral Palsy of R.I. as an art teacher to adults with disabilities. I also teach drawing at the Lincoln R.I. Sr. Center. I like to paint with oils, acrylics, watercolors, and pastels. In the summer of 2019 I won 2nd place in the Coventry, CT. Plein air Festival.
