The wonders of the natural world have always held a fascination for me: while spending youthful summers at our cabin on a Maine lake; hiking, biking and white water canoeing with the Appalachian Mountain Club; and training teachers of young children to share nature experiences with their students. I retired in 2000 from leading major excursions for adult members of the Appalachian Mountain Club sharing the natural wonders of Greece, Norway, Ireland, Scotland, Iceland, Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands, and Chile.
  I retired in 2002 after 32 years as Department Chairperson of Early Childhood Education at Springfield Technical Community College in Springfield Massachusetts. This teacher training focused on professionalism in all aspects of early care and education with a particular emphasis on using the elements found in nature. I continue to consult with a training organization, Starting Points, Inc. Institute for Early Childhood Educators, and for several years offered art classes for afterschool kids at the Sherburne Memorial Library.
  My love of the natural world now shows up in my photographs, colored pencil work, watercolors, and mixed media. Traveling is still a passion and my husband and I have toured in Ireland, France, Hawaii, Australia, Costa Rica, Mexico, China, Chile and most recently St. Maarten’s. I have found many natural wonders to inspire my art in these places.
  I have benefitted from art instruction at the George Walter Vincent Smith Art Museum in Springfield, MA as well as instruction in Vermont from Peter Huntoon, Linda Hammond, Alan Friedman, Robert O’Brien, Barbie Weaver, and Don Hofer.
