Biography and Education

I grew up with artists in the family and have pursued fine arts throughout my life.  I took lessons as a child at the Worcester Art Museum and took a few art courses at Newton College of the Sacred Heart, where I received a degree in Psychology.  After college, I pursued a career in advertising and then finance and later worked for the R I Community Food Bank. Now I develop and manage commercial real estate.  Over the last four years, I have studied more, drawn more, painted more, exhibited more and pursued art with more diligence and passion.

My husband and I have recently moved into Providence to take better advantage of the cultural activities in the city.  We enjoy visiting with our adult children in New York and San Francisco.
