About the Artist

I have painted every subject known to woman at this point, starting with marine art, coastals, seascapes, florals and landscapes en plein air (on location) I also painted portraits and figurative work and add it to my skills and eventually incorporate it into my Seascapes and Garden Scenes.  I am excited to see where it goes and how it evolves.   I have been painting water in all its various forms and moods for 40 years.  Join me as I continue my exploration of art and nature at my new studio in Maine, Chapin Studio @ Stoneridge.
