We don't always get to call the shots in life...but as painters we do! As an artist I love the freedom of choosing what to paint next. I love the Gloucester scenery, characters and culture. Painting ideas never cease. It is a little overwhelming living in this party town! For example, the kids raising hell on the bridge at Good Harbor...will be called, "We Dive at Five." I can't wait to stage the entire event on canvas. I pretend I am a film maker...deciding what every frame/canvas will look like. It is fun to hand pick every subject and every prop or lack there of. I think to myself, "'how would Martin Scorsese set the scene?"' Or should I take on director Clint Eastwood's minimal and simplistic approach. As far as color goes, I mix the prettiest I can, even if the building is falling apart from decay. Painting is my one big world of freedom.
I am lucky to live in the magical village of East Gloucester, MA, and own Beauty Bar at 12 Parker Street. This space is filled with natural sunlight, ideal for cutting and coloring hair, as well as displaying my art. (www.beautybarstyle.com) In the past, I've worked in commercial printing and was an administrative assistant at Harvard University. My English degree is from The University of Massachusetts/Boston. I have one daughter, (Nurse) Alexa, and two extremely cute grandkittens, Jack and Chloe!
