The artist is a proud Franco-American who was born into a family of self-taught artists (4 generations). She has lived in Maine all her life and loves living in a state that offers such rustic beauty. “Maine, with it's lovely four seasons, provides painting opportunities beyond expectation!” She is continuously inspired by a circle of talented family and friends, who are her most valued critics. She is committed to helping other Maine artists to market their art by inviting them to show their work at GreenWood Gallery, located at 998 Old Danville Rd., Auburn.
