She is a member of the St. Michaels Art League and the PAPCB(Plein Air Painters of the Chesapeake Bay) "I am dedicated to painting quiet landscapes, simple still lifes and bold florals capturing the distinctive light and patterns of color that surround each subject. A lover of nature, I find joy in painting "plein air" seeing beyond the visible to share a unique truth in the world around us."
