Artist’s Statement

I am an oil and acrylic artist living in Milton, MA. However, my heart is on Martha’s Vineyard. I visit the Island as much as possible. I lived and worked there many years ago in the school system as the Speech and Language Therapist for the Island, pre-school to High School. Active in the theatre community as a costumer and sometimes actress, I costumed several shows for the Playhouse.

After adopting our son from Cambodia, twenty-one years ago, I started my second career as an artist. I have painted in different styles and mediums: watercolor, acrylic, oil, and mixed media. I was represented by the Island Art Gallery for several years as well as a participating artist with the Featherstone Center for the Arts in group shows and the Artisan Fairs.

The paintings in this show were taken from pictures and memories of my favorite places on the Island.  I am an impressionistic style painter.  While painting I can almost feel the ocean breezes and the sand beneath my feet.  I have been painting for thirty years and I never tire of my images of the Martha’s Vineyard.  It is a magical place of inspiration.  I hope my paintings will be enjoyed as a reminder of the beauty of nature and the sense of freedom and wonder the Island provides.

Proceeds from art sales are split between the artist and MV Playhouse.
