Having studied painting and doing Stained Glass commissioned works since 1975, I\'m continuing with both those endeavor\'s. I studied painting at Monserrat School of Art in Massachusetts, and sight-size drawing with Robert Cormier at the Guild of Boston Artists on Newbury St, Boston. David Curtis of Gloucester/Rockport ,Mass has been an inspiration for plain air painting since 1979. I love teaching children , learning from their sense of color and \"freedom\" and am passionate about spending at least 20 hours a week in my studio (when my grandchildren are busy and in school). My other \"selfs\" spend time playing the piano, gardening, skiing, running, rollerblading, boating and surviving the baby teeth munching of our new English Setter and Coon Kitty!
