Artist Bio or Statement / Bio de l’artiste ou la déclaration

Art has always been part of my life. Shortly after graduating with a B.F.A. from Rochester Institute of Technology, I discovered using colored pencils as a fine art medium. I work realistically and I like the smooth texture and fine details that can be achieved with colored pencils. I am particularly attracted to the different effects that can be created with them and how portable they are.

Primarily a colored pencil artist, I have enjoyed extending my artistry into other mediums. My latest journey has been into the world of Oriental brush painting. I enjoy the contrast between the very slow process of creating a colored pencil painting layer upon layer, and the spontaneity of brush painting, where I try to convey the essence of a subject by using minimal strokes of ink and watercolor.

My artwork is featured in the books, CP Treasures, Volumes II &III; 2013 Peace Project Book; CP Hidden Treasures and the Jan. 2014 CPSA To The Point Magazine. I am a contributing artist in the book, Masterful Color by Arlene Steinberg. My award winning work has been shown in solo gallery exhibits, juried shows and group exhibitions, and is in collections throughout the United States.
