ART FORM:  Watercolor and Oil Painting

ARTIST BIOGRAPHY:  I was born and raised in Philadelphia.  I began pursuing my interest in art at Temple’s Tyler School of Art.  After moving to central Pennsylvania in 1968, I studied with several prominent area artists including Bruce Johnson, Nick Ruggieri, and Charles (Li) Hidley.  I invite the viewer to explore the images in my oil paintings, interpreting them based on their innermost feelings.  My watercolors are impressions of nature and still life.  I have exhibited at the William Ris Gallery of Camp Hill (now Arts at 510 in Harrisburg), Whitaker Center for the Arts, and have won both 1st place and Best of Show awards at the Art Association of Harrisburg and Reservoir Park Mansion.  Some of my work has been selected for the permanent collection at Elizabethtown College, and Temple University in Harrisburg.

I am a graduate of the Pennsylvania School of Art & Design with a degree in Fine Art.  My paintings are also on exhibit year-round at the Gallery at Le Sorelle restaurant in Mt. Gretna, and at my home studio at Alden Place in Cornwall, a few minutes from Mt. Gretna.  To see more of my work, please call for an appointment.  I would be delighted to meet you.
