Surrounded by New England's natural environs and adults ranging in interests from engineering and music,  to art and science, my childhood imagination flourished.  I was drawn to anthropology in college and to jewelry making after school, seeking a livlihood that afforded creativity and financial stability.  While operating, Designs by Magi, I developed my interest in natural healing and fine art painting.  I studied with master painters:  Adeline Goldmink Tronzo,  Stan Moeller, and Dennis Perrin. After this period, I practiced Reiki Healing and devoted myself to painting and teaching. Today, my paintings are exhibited throughout New England and in private collections across the country and in Europe
