I have been a career painter for approximately twenty-five years. After having painted in a strict representational style for many years, my main focus being the human figure, I recently found that this no longer gave me the freedom of expression that I craved. At a new stage in my life, and always moving closer to the core – an ever-elusive and much-sought after authenticity – I’ve begun painting in a more impressionistic manner, resulting in the newer work you’ll see on these pages (recent work will show the date of completion beside the title). Currently, you can find my work in various locations throughout western MA, including Canyon Ranch of the Berkshires, Lauren Clark Fine Art in Great Barrington and Alta Restaurant & Wine Bar, in Lenox. I live here in Lenox with my husband, Edward Acker, who is a photographer. Visit Edward’s site. Please feel free to drop me a line if you see something that interests you, or if you’d just like to say hello. I’d love to hear from you!
