A little rosé time

I am a painter and author/illustrator of picture books and have always occupied myself in the arts. I am motivated by the challenge of putting down in paint my version of what captures my attention and the delight it brings to others. I was happiest as a young child when asked to do my older siblings art projects or buyilding a fort in the woods and my dad thought it a good idea to gift me my own painter's box to accompany him on his painting jaunts around our home county of Bucks. As it turned out, he was right and I went on to receive my BFA in Communication Design from Kutztown University and spent the first 15 years of my career cultivating my Philadelphia design firm, Hansen Design. I loved it and worked very hard and eventually my designs and illustrations were featured in popular design trade publications such as Communication Arts, Graphis and Print. After starting a family with my husband, the evolution to painter seemed a natural progression, and since my first showing in 2007, I’ve been lucky enough to have my paintings collected by folks here and in other parts of the world. I paint and write the majority of the year in my studio in Bucks County, a place I represent on the quarterly covers of Bucks County Magazine and in ads for the tourism campaign Visit Bucks County.  My subjects of interest have always been landscapes ~ both rural and coastal, and figurative, with a new affinity towards still life. I am represented in the Bucks County area by the Silverman Gallery, as one of the original Core Four. Since 2019, I have been an active member of the Salmagundi Club~NYC where I have met many fellow artists and have garnered a few awards along the way. I maintain a 15 year plus membership with the Phillips' Mill Associaion, the birthing grounds of Bucks County impressionism. Currently my painting, Valley Below August Skies, is on exhibition with Art in Embassies at the U.S. Ambassador's residence in Kigali, Rwanda. Up next is earth2air, a solo show opening September 14th at the Silverman Gallery in Buckingham, PA...pleae join us!
