"WHAT IS IT YOU PLAN TO DO WITH YOUR ONE WILD & PRECIOUS LIFE?"

My life has been guided by this question posited by Mary Oliver. Growing up in rural Pennsylvania, I dreamed of being an artist as a kid. As I grew into young adulthood, I decided to build a career in technology and management consulting, which spanned decades. I loved it. I channeled my creativity into my job—building businesses, inventing new products, creating growth strategies, building great teams.

 

After my retirement, I decided to refocus on my passion for art. I completed the Certificate Program at Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 2019. I loved going back to school with students decades younger—I learned so much from them.

 

Today, I enjoy a full-time studio practice in the suburbs of Philadelphia. My paintings are abstracted landscapes that recreate the playful wonder and energy of simpler times for today’s world. I am inspired by the outdoors, childlike play, and exploration. Each painting holds the power to connect you with your own experience of freedom and uninhibited self-expression.
