About the Teacher: ​

I have always loved to draw, but as a public school music teacher, my outlet for art was primarily bulletin boards until about twenty-two years ago.  I had been using chalks to make posters for my then five-year-old son, when I signed up for a summer adult-education course.  My instructor told me that if I was really interested in painting in pastels, I should learn how to draw!

I have since taken evening classes in drawing, painting, figure drawing and landscape painting at Munson Williams Proctor Institute, and have been critiqued by Louise Frechette, PSA and Mary Padgett, PSA and attended workshops with Kathleen Galligan, PSA, Sean Dye, PSA and Michael Chesley Johnson, PSA MPAC.  I was a founding member of the Syracuse Pastel Artists, and am a member of the Ontario (NY) County Arts Council and an associate member of the Pastel Society of America; I have been painting seriously in pastels for the last ten years.
