Far Away Places Exhibition

On View in the Garden Gallery – The current exhibition features 34 oil paintings, painted from 1994-1915. The paintings in this exhibition all represent special moments from travels to 7 countries and 1 state: Nepal, Botswana, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Costa Rica, Greece, Antarctica, and Alaska.
With a lifelong affinity for sketching and painting, I specialize in painting natural landscapes. My mediums are both watercolor and oil paints. The seasons provide constant change and unending interest. Niagara Falls and the surrounding area offer a wealth of opportunities and subjects. During twenty years of regular visits to Maine, the coastal area has become a major focus of my painting. A variety of tours and travels have also provided plenty of references for painting. Currently I enjoy painting for friends, family, selected shows, and charity auctions. Together with my husband, a poet, writer, and photographer, we create calendars that incorporate our paintings and poems. We also produce picture books for children. Most recently, I am emphasizing plein air painting opportunities, which allow for immersion in the natural landscape.
