My love of art truly began as a young girl sneaking into my mother and grandmother’s art classes! I earned a BA in Art and Math from Bucknell University as well as a M.S. in Interior Design from Drexel University. About ten years ago I began moving my design focus from interior spaces to the canvas. I have studied oil painting under Elise Phillips since then, and have gained incredible inspiration from her as well as other east coast plein air artists. I am lucky enough to also paint once a week with my mother, Joan Spillman.I draw much of my inspiration from the local Chester County countryside, and summertime visits to Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. I am the Co-Chair of Artists Circle Fine Art group, and a member of MAPAPA. I show my work locally at Gallery222, Maureen’s Gallery, as well as local art shows and Plein Air events.
