I grew up in Cambridge, MA and attended art school at the Boston University
School for the Arts, where the painting education consisted of working solely
from the figure and still life. Starting in 1993 I lived in Europe for 12 years, first
in Nancy, France and then in Mainz, Germany. My favorite activity was walking
in European cities, especially Paris and London. The long history of European
buildings, parks and people creates interactions of the past and present. My
work was exhibited in Germany and London and is in private collections
throughout Europe and the U.S. I moved to Houston in 2005.
My paintings reflect our need for nature in the city - at parks, in bits of
sidewalk greenery, among the shadows of foliage on concrete.
