I am an experimental water media artist. It was serendipitous the way I found my way to the Catskill mountains and landed in my home built before the Civil War. My tiny community is known for being home to known National and International artists and Bright Hill Word and Image gallery. I cherish the quiet and privacy of living in the mountains. I enjoy the short drive through the mountains to go to town for groceries, restaurants, friends, and entertainment. I love making art and sharing my gift with others. I enjoy the warm friendly atmosphere I have created to make art and share with friends.
