I am a part of the history of Emerson Umbrella from its humble beginnings in the 1980s with a degree in Painting & Art History.  I had lived in Paris for 3 years and after returning to the US, began volunteering and then teaching at DeCordova Museum.  I also began teaching at the Emerson Umbrella.  

I have returned to France frequently to paint landscapes, mostly in Provence, the Var or the Vaucluse.  Back in my studio, I painted mostly still life using numerous objects familiar to me and integrating them into a whole by relating them to each other.  I am interested in the philosophy of art and the way we can express ourselves by abstraction.
