All of my paintings are inspired by what I experienced as a child and young adult. I am naturally drawn to the Vermont landscape as I roamed the hills, valleys, and woods for endless hours as a child growing up on our family dairy farm in Milton, Vermont. I love to paint Vermont barns, Vermont wild flowers, Holstein cows, the birds that frequent my bird feeder and Lake Champlain from which I draw inspiration every day. I love to paint because there is always a challenge and a surprise as I never know where a painting will lead. My hope is to bring joy to others through my art.
