Art has always been a part of my life. I have been painting for over 40 years in all mediums. I started in oil, have continued in acrylics and for the past 15 years I have been doing watercolor. My personal favorite is watercolor. I enjoy trying to create the subtleties of color, shadow, light and contrast using watercolor. Although I am primarily self-taught I have taken courses over the years at the Boston Center for Adult Education, Lynn Evening School, and North Shore Community College. I studied for three years with Jack Jones. I enjoyed painting on location with Jack Jones’ students in Vermont and various places on the North Shore. My paintings have been in shows in Lynn, Lynnfield, Chelmsford, Ipswich and Topsfield and I have received numerous awards. I have been a parishioner of Our Lady of the Assumption Church since 1968 and an active member of the Lynnfield Art Guild for many years.
