Irresistable Urges


Despite the fact that my maternal family dates back to the Mayflower, I am considered a "washashore" on Cape Cod. I grew up in the Washington, DC area with only a week or two on the Cape in summer. And my family lived for those few weeks! 

We spent many days on fairly deserted beaches and roamed the dunes. We had time with extended family, hearing stories of those long gone and their roles and antics in the village. My grandfather was a blacksmith and a great grandfather had been a lighthouse keeper on Martha's Vineyard.  There were buggy rides into the dunes of Sandy Neck, clam bakes with neighbors, and time with my grandfather in the blacksmith shop making sweetheart rings from horseshoe nails. 

I paint to recapture those times and the spirit and beauty of this place. The wider my circle of artist friends and associates becomes, my curiosity grows to explore the variety of mediums and amazing results that are possible. And that is where those Irresistible Urges come in! 

I am a member of the Eastwind Gallery and Studio in Orleans, MA, a juried member of Monday Painters on the Dennis Green and of Cape Cod Art Center. I am a member of the Yarmouth Art Guild and join the Cape Cod Art Center's Plein Air group in good weather. My piece, Walking the Flats, was juried into the Cape Cod Museum’s Member Show in 2019. I have participated in Plein Air events in Chatham (Chatham Sparkles 2019) and in Barnstable (Barnstorming 2019). My miniatures can be found at the Spotted Cod in Sandwich, Elburnes of Dennis, and Nautique in Brewster.
