Artist’s Statement: This collection of seashells was from a day at the NJ shore amongst friends at Brandt Beach. After collecting the shells in our pockets, we washed and artfully arranged them on a white dinner plate at the rental house. We sat around the still life arrangement, drinking wine, talking about our lives, laughing and painting. It was a fun, memorable day for this group of wind-tossed watercolorists.

Artist’s Bio: I live in Hamilton, New Jersey, and have worked in graphic design for 38 years. The details and tight deadlines in such a job are at opposite of painting for my creative fulfillment and at my own leisure, yet I enjoy both! I feel fortunate to paint and exhibit watercolors alongside the many talented artists from New Hope to Princeton, as well as in Pennsylvania and along the New Jersey shore. Exhibitions have included Artworks, Garden State and New Jersey Watercolor Societies, Ocean County Artists Guild, D&R Greenway Land Trust, Bordentown and New Jersey Historical Societies, West Windsor Arts Council, Whole World Arts, Mercer County Artists, and others. I primarily find inspiration from sun-dappled woods, wildflowers and water scenes, and I enjoy the individuality of faces for portraiture. My go-to medium is watercolors. I sometimes use pen and ink, pencil for sketching, acrylic for painting, and calligraphy. I am on the board of Garden State Watercolor Society and Friends for the Abbott Marshlands. Born into an artistic family, three generations have worked in art!
