About the Artist
My first interest had always been painting but a lack of space in NYC limited my opportunity to set up a permanent workspace.After attending Parsons School of Design in NYC, I found myself absorbed in textile design and worked with several European textile companies for over 20 years developing original designs for womens’ clothing and home furnishings.
I was also an avid animal lover and gave 5 years of volunteer service to the Wildlife Conservation Society by becoming a docent at the Central Park Zoo.
The synchronicity or “ St.Croix-nicity “of life, as I like to refer to it, has enabled these two passions of mine to intersect.
I made the move to St. Croix shortly after September 11, 2001 as a result of yet another dance with St. Croix-nicity. Through the serendipitous marvel of the internet, I met and later married a remarkable man who happened to live here!
The melding of culture and nature that exists on St. Croix inspires me every day.The daily infusion of light and color is an artists’ dream.
The opportunity to have adopted two cats and two dogs from the animal shelter here in addition to feeding wild birds that fly to our feeders ( bats too !) is a daily joy.
My work has been sold in galleries here on St.Croix, in New York and is held in private collections.
