After retiring in June of 2012 from a thirty-five year teaching career in the studio arts at a New England boarding school I am excited about fulfilling a lifetime dream of opening a fine art gallery. Gallery 37 opened its door in Milford, Delaware in mid-December of 2012. Gallery 37 is a Destination for Artful Living. Since 1997 I have managed to be a practicing artist, exhibiting widely in group shows on the east coast as well as Gallery representation in the Caribbean. I have organized workshops thru iL-Chiostro teaching abroad in Italy, Sardinia, and France since 2000. I also have been actively exhibiting and teaching in the Caribbean since 1995. In October of 2013 I lead a painting workshop in Istanbul, Turkey. Each summer since 2006 I have been on the teaching staff at Snow Farm The New England Craft Center in Western Massachusetts. I suspect what keeps me engaged in painting is the continuous complex interchange between expressing color and movement. I find it compelling creating that visual surface tension between the two. The imagery is just a jumping off point and excuses for shapes that I find exciting to interpret. Not a day goes by when I’m not using my art education experience with the public that walks thru my door and visually connects with the art at Gallery 37.
