Having lived in NYC my whole life until 2 years ago, I have always been excited by the goings on around me. Everything is so activated. I realize that even now living in rural Ulster County. I studied painting and drawing at Pratt in the 70’s, I think I was very naïve about the world…just accepted so much. After graduating, I got involved in the fashion biz styling photo shoots. Had and still have a blast! So many wonderful people and so many amazing places to go creating beautiful pictures along the way. I continued to paint the whole time, showing occasionally through the years. Ceramics came into play about 15 years ago and I started to incorporate it into my artwork here and there. I feel a stronger commitment now to sharing my work with the community
Art: forever, Fashion: 30+years
First, the landscape, the rolling hills and valleys with small hamlets dotted throughout. Second, all the things to do (or not do). Third, proximity to NYC.
I garden quite a bit and am outside all day if I’m not in the studio or working. There is a random chaos that happens in the landscape that is always a joyous surprise.
I’m working on a new group of paintings where my players are taking on more and the space they live in is competitive. I currently have a painting in the Mohawk Regional Exhibition in Albany as well as a painting in the WAAM Associates Member Exhibition in Woodstock (Links in my bio on Instagram).
Also, my husband Richard Hall and I have recently started a location business, 6oclockLOCATIONS. It’s been great seeing so many beautiful, unique properties and sharing them with our clients.
