A Bit About Me
Here in my little town of Chepachet, down in my basement studio, I create translucent and colorful works of art using salvaged glass panels and bottles. Light is a crucial part of my art. With mini lights or light from the sun, each piece is transformed, creating the look of stained glass and thus, inspiring a mood for the art piece.
Art has always been a part of my life as far back as I can remember. While in college, I made extra money painting murals in people's homes, on walls, and doors throughout RI.
Then, once graduating with a degree in art education. I worked as an art teacher at Smithfield High School until the birth of my second daughter. During the next 5 years, I stayed home and worked on my art when I could, participating in art festivals a few times a year. When my youngest started kindergarten , I started the job search. My love of gardening and my creative side landed me a job as a gardener at The Golden Lamb Buttery in Brooklyn Connecticut. Here I would stay for the next 9 years, loving every minute of it. While at the Lamb, I spend spring and summer in the garden, growing flowers for beautiful bouquets to showcase throughout the restaurant, and during late November, I start making Christmas wreaths which decorate the facade and interior of the barn/restaurant.
Once the garden is put to bed for the season, It's time for holiday art shows and starting in 2018, I will be adding spring and summer shows to my calendar. Art shows year round. Yikes!
