|The Artist on her art:
“I have been drawing all my life and painting professionally for approximately 25 years. With no formal training, I have enthusiastically studied the work of John Singer Sargent and his contemporaries, whose work I love and admire. I paint a variety of subjects including figures in interiors, still lifes, and landscapes. I especially enjoy painting the human face because of its expressiveness.”
