San Rafael, CA
I paint what I love in an effort to share and make the world a more beautiful place.
I am a native North Beach San Franciscan raised in Marin County by an Italian family. I love art, the outdoors, gardening, and sports.
My husband and I raised three wonderful children while working in SF law enforcement for 33 years.
In retirement, I have enjoyed exploring my true passions which include painting. I enrolled in a variety of art classes at College of Marin as well as private lessons. My interests are still life and landscape, but enjoy experimenting in abstract.
As the world is always changing, so is my art. I love being surprised by my experimentation.
My favorite artists are Claude Monet and Vincent Van Gogh. Much inspiration has been obtained while visiting museums and galleries in Europe and Asia.
My artwork has been shown in juried shows at Gallery Route One in Point Reyes, O'Hanlon Center in Mill Valley, Marin County Fair art show, Sebastopol Center for the Arts, College of Marin student art show and other events at The Laurence Gallery in Occidental, Marin Open Studios in Corte Madera and various juried shows at the Marin Society of Artists. I have artwork hanging at Juice Girl in Mill Valley and the Marin Society of Artists which is for sale.
I am a member of the Marin Society of Artists located at 1515 3rd St San Rafael.
