I live on Martha’s Vineyard with my husband and three boys, and work out of a studio behind our Vineyard Haven home. I studied the Middle East in graduate school and have long loved to travel and explore all parts of our world. These days my exploring seems to come in a smaller focus, through daily adventures with my boys. I find inspiration in so many parts of this world, from exploring new cities to investigating a new birds nest in our yard or our near-daily beach-combing expeditions.
I spend part of each year living and traveling aboard our sailboat, Robin Hood. My work is certainly influenced by our life on the ocean and the beautiful islands we visit. I enjoy working in all mediums, from pastels to watercolor to oil paint. Living aboard and traveling teaches one to make the most of whatever supplies are available! Lately I have been focused on oil and watercolor.
I hope you enjoy seeing and reading about our adventures. I love to connect with new people, so please sign up for my newsletter or send me an email if you’re interested in working together. I love to paint landscapes, people, boats, roads, buildings and cities. I especially love to create scenes with special meaning to you, so if you have a commission idea, please reach out!
