Statement / Bio
I studied painting at Boston University, and have since worked as a geriatric social worker for many years while continuing to paint on the side. I like to paint landscapes and still life. I am influenced by my surroundings, the seasons, colors, shapes and movement. I like to engage emotionally with whatever I am painting , and the result is a product of the dialogue that I have with my subject. More recently, I have combined my interests in art and social work, and am employed as an expressive art therapist in a psychiatric hospital My patients influence my work and, I like to think, vice-versa.
