Beaches, Barns, and Blooms Exhibit Cape Cod Community Media Center

My childhood memories are filled with summer beach days, forts hidden in the woods, and riding bikes around town. My mother’s garden was a mix of blooming flowers and fragrant herbs, abundant tomatoes, beans, and rows of lettuce and radish. A farm on one side of our house tended fields of corn, perfect for effortless games of hide-and-seek. While the farm on the opposite side raised pigs, goats, and sheep, and their fields grew tall for harvests of hay in the summer. My surroundings were a delight for untold reasons as a child and continue to be a source of inspiration as an adult.

I primarily work in watercolor, it suits my personality and artistic style. Importantly, watercolor lends itself to the stop-and-start work-style I need as a busy mother of three young boys. My color palette includes American-made, natural mineral pigment watercolor paints which leave natural mineral shimmer and granulation complimenting my work. Residents of Harwich, my boys, husband, and I love our Cape Cod community. I am always making note of my next painting from our surroundings.
