I welcome you, one and all to my blog and share with you my passion for country as depicted in many of my award winning landscapes. It is pure joy to paint en plein air in this wonderful and picturesque state of Pennsylvania where I live. Mother Nature's Studio is all around me, and inspires me throughout the year's changing seasons.

My career as an artist has been a journey down many roads experimenting with a variety of mediums and creative techniques. As my hand guides my paintbrush it is my basic love of nature that always prevails. One sees in my country scenes, whether created with oil, acrylic, watercolor or ink, on paper or canvas, style and a mood.

Selected paintings and drawings are on permanent display at Grey Towers NHL in Milford, PA and the Dorflinger-Suydam Sanctuary in White Mills. I have had solo shows at the Dutot Museum in Delaware Water Gap, Kettle Creek, Golden Fish and Looking Glass Galleries, and the Gallery at Chant Realtors, Lords Valley. My work has been exhibited at the PA state capital, the Chautauqua Institute, the Westfield, NJ Art Association, and The Art Loft in Mayville, New York. My work has travelled into private art collections in the US and abroad. I have been awarded numerous prizes through participation in juried shows; my work has appeared on posters, the covers of magazines and in newspapers.

It was from the City University of New York that I received my BA in Art, and I was a teacher of early childhood classes before retiring to pursue my art interests full-time. To see more of the my work, visit the gallery page of my website at:

Conveniently located at 631 Route 739, just south of I-84, Exit 34 in Lords Valley, THE GALLERY AT CHANT REALTORS has for more than twenty-five years offered opportunity for local artists to exhibit their work. Because of a keen interest in the arts, the generosity of Associate Broker George Schmitt and his associates, many well known and award winning artists have been featured. A major summertime group show featuring artists from the Hemlock Farms Community kicks off a year of two-month period solo or group shows featuring artists from near and far. The gallery which is comprised of the reception area, central hallway and large conference room is well lit and equipped with a professional hanging system. Meet-the-artist receptions are typically held on the first Saturday of the month from 5-7 PM except in July when the group show reception is held on a Friday. The office/gallery is open 7 days a week from 9-5. Visitors are always welcome. For more information, call 570-775-7337. Volunteer Curator for the gallery is artist, Joan Polishook. Upcoming shows are scheduled into 2016.
