My Medium

I use many different mediums in my work such as watercolor, oil, drawing and colored pencils, printmaking and clay. I  believe that working in a single medium is restrictive to my artistic process. Each idea manifests in its own individual style.  I also employ various surfaces and textures, such as canvas, wood panel and chine colle printmaking.

My Inspiration

As a graduate student, I began to create  a body of  artwork focused on a local goat farmer, Noelie Houle.  After spending years on her farm we developed a rich friendship.  I painted her and her animals and wrote her real life story, which became  a best-selling, award-winning book entitled "The Goat Lady."  It is included in Houghton-Mifflin's  SRA Reading Program, and in the "Philosophy for Children"  book in the chapter entitled "Compassion" .
