Artist Statement


I have liked to draw since I was a child growing up on Long Island. I loved Art in school, however my grandmother said, “You’ll never be able to make a living from it so take some clerical courses,” which I did. Right out of high school, I went to work in the clerical field and continued working for over 40 years. During that time, I continued to draw and paint, taking various courses to increase my abilities.


I’m retired now and continue to paint using both watercolor and acrylics.  Having lived by the water the majority of my life, you will see that reflected in my paintings of the ocean, streams, lakes, rivers, etc. Other favorite subjects are lighthouses, barns, animals and pet portraits.

If you are interested in purchasing any of my available works, please contact me.

Welcome! Thank you for your interest in exhibiting your art work at the Prospect Public Library.

Please consider coming to the library to see the exhibit space.

The exhibit space is in the Irene E. Boardman Community Room.

Please make arrangements no later than one month before your art exhibit is to start as to what day and time you will be bringing your art in and what day you will be taking down your exhibit.

We are happy to offer our space if you would like to host an Artist Reception.

The community room is a multi purpose room and serves many uses for the community. The community room is open during Library hours for patrons to come and view your artwork during times that the room is not in specific use.
