About Me



 Welcome to my crazy, tropical world of color!  Originally from Stowe, Vemont, I came to Florida for one winter over forty years ago and never left! As much as I love the mountains, this Pisces girl has truly found her element. I split my time between Bradenton FL & Key West.  The beautiful Gulf Coast of Florida has influenced my style of painting and designs. 

My medium of choice is acrylics and I love to paint on unique surfaces that enhance my tropical style.  Palm frond shucks, coconuts, & crab buoys are just a few of the interesting items that I use for my art. Throw in a bit of photography & graphic design and as soon as you can say "pina colada please" the colors explode!

I also send out a bi-monthly newsletter (well...almost bi-monthly - hey, I'm on beach time!) called "Livin' the Beach Life". It's a fun, quirky compilation of all things tropical in my beautiful state of Florida and beyond. 

I hope you enjoy browsing my site.  I am truly fortunate to be “livin' the beach life!
