I work at home in my two studios; the main one is in New Orleans, the other one is in the west of Ireland where I live for a few months each year in the summer. I studied at the Boston Museum School and Cooper Union in New York City, as well as The New School and The Arts Students' League. Besides studying fine arts, I also studied antiques and art history at Sotheby's in London, and graduated from The International Culinary Center in New York. I was lucky enough to grow up in the Off Broadway theater world in New York City where both my parents were involved. My part was as a set painter and designer. I have had many gallery shows in the East Village, and a one woman show at La Mama, NY NY. Lately, after moving to New Orleans a few years ago, I find I have...

The Last Supper 14 items
Notes When Walking the Dog These 9"x12" canvas board oil paintings were made after I finished walking my dog. During each walk I noticed yet another compelling color or shadow on the beautiful houses here in New Orleans.
Still Lifes I just love the colors and shapes and patterns that I see when I paint a still-life, I feel these paintings are an expression of bounty!
Collaborative Work These works were done in New Orleans, in collaboration with a wonderful artist named Andrea Brown. You can see more of her work at
Portraits People's faces I find endlessly interesting, especially the "caught off guard" moments, if you're lucky enough to catch them.
Garden of Eden and Ann's Garden Gardens are fascinating to me; I see them as elaborate "living" paintings, like animated nature. The Garden of Eden series is based on my own garden in Ireland. Ann's Garden was a small cottage garden in Cambridge where I had the pleasure of staying for a few months.
Blues These 8.5" x11" marker drawings are part of a cook book project. My recipes are inspired by various Blues musicians.
Doors, Windows and Houses I have always been attracted to doors and windows and their shadows. These architectural elements I feel are barriers to the secrets people create.
War in Heaven This 36 foot mural, when all 12 paintings are put together, is about kicking the devil into hell. It was a project done over a period of two years.
Porch Series This series was done a while back, when I was living in Coconut Grove, Florida. These oil paintings are views from our family's porch and inside the house as well.
