Since my own wedding in 2004 to my sweetheart of, gasp, 12 years in December, I've been painting couples' sweetest wedding day memory . . . their cake. They are artistic, delicious (one hopes), and a visual symbol of a couples' special day. Once the day is over, so is the cake, unless the couple saves the top for the 1st anniversary tasting. A Wedding Cake Portrait savors your day forever by letting you eat your cake, and, have it too! And, for those last-minute gift givers looking for something extraordinary for your sweetheart, you can commission a Wedding Cake Portrait of your cake and I will send you a printable card to present on Valentine's Day.

Deemed the Kitchen God's Artist by NJ Savvy Living for my sainted appliances, I'm now known more for my vibrant, meditational paintings of chairs set surprisingly in landscapes. Since relocating to NC from NJ, mothering my two sons, and caring for our rescue pup, Cider, took the lead. Now, that my Durham home studio is renovated it's open again for virtual art coaching and the resumption of my personal art and commissions. The work I make is inspired by my joy of teaching, exploring nature, and traveling. On The Teaching Artist Blog, I share my approach to teaching and educate my readers about my creative process.
