Welcome!   I live in Beacon, New York, a peaceful and diverse community in

the Hudson Valley.  I paint every day, and have for many years.  Related work includes commissions, art therapy for children, teaching Veterans art to overcome difficult experiences, and private teaching.

Art and creativity are meditative processes, improving a sense of happiness and well being; a special occasion for the sprit.
