In the first few weeks of the Wellesley Community Art Project, some creative community members came forward with support, ideas and action. A new collaboration was born and has been made possible with the cooperation of Mary Butler of Haynes Management. Check out the new exhibit in the window at the site of the former Whole Foods Market.

Since becoming a new mom, I spend a tremendous amount of time outdoors exploring Wellesley’s trails and parks. I find the quiet beauty of our community to be the source of my artistic inspiration. People take tediously good care of Wellesley. Shop owners and neighbors take pride in expressing beauty. Our community actively creates positive engagement. I feel very fortunate to live here and have the opportunity to contribute my art.
My work reflects the colorful way I see life and my paintings explore the themes of nature, seascape, and international streetscape. I work with acrylics on canvas from my home studio in Wellesley. I am primarily self-taught, but credit my parents for my training, as both are accomplished artists.
When people see my work, I would like them to be drawn to the vibrant colors and to feel compelled to journey down a foreign street. Painting enables me to interact with the world differently. I pay closer attention to the life around me. I see depth, color, line, and texture. I study gestures and explore how forms relate to each other. I hope that my art becomes a source of pleasure for those who welcome it into their life.
Born and raised in Brooklyn (hence the bridge photos), Georgetown Medical School in DC, have been in Mass since 1972, in Needham since 1975. Have done photography as a hobby since the early 1960s, was photo editor of my college newspaper, used to do my own B&W darkroom work, went all-digital about 12 years ago. The bulk of my photos over the past half-dozen years have been of my two granddaughters however I like to get in some pix of railroads (another hobby of mine) and landscapes (mostly around Chatham) & architectural landmarks.
