The Gallery at Jessie Creek is a space we created to further support our local community. We have opened our doors (and walls) for a variety of local artisans to showcase their passion and artwork.

We host an Artist Reception monthly which provides an opportunity to meet the artists and enjoy a glass of wine, and live music completes the afternoon.

Canā€™t make it to the debut event? The gallery is open to the public during regular winery hours, and we welcome you to enjoy the space! Selected artists showcase for an entire month and the pieces are available for sale.


Artist Statement
My happiest place as an artist is painting outdoors. I am captivated by the livingĀ model and dance of light before me. I was an intensive care nurse at one time and IĀ liked the pace and fast changing atmosphere. When I started painting. 25 years later, IĀ was drawn to the unpredictability and dynamic conditions of painting a landscape. IĀ search for quiet and sometimes secluded areas in a forest or marshes. The JerseyĀ beaches are another preferred setting. Direct observation and the alla prima method ofĀ painting wet into wet is my preferred practice in painting outdoors or in the studio.

Growing up with 4 brothers and in close proximity to a park with a forest and a creekĀ I spent my formative years admiring trees, rocks, birds and insects and searching forĀ interesting specimens. Nature, I believe is our greatest gift and painting enables me toĀ tap into the spiritual connection I feel for it.

I am grateful for being able to express my love and appreciation for nature and itsĀ restorative powers through painting. The idea of mixing oil paints and making shapes onĀ a canvas or paper to create a likeness of what I see is fantastic to me. I take greatĀ pleasure in creating a little world within the picture frame that can bring me andĀ hopefully others a sense of peace and quietude.

I also enjoy working and teaching in my studio. I look forward to learning and exploring what is possible for me in painting and continuing my visual development.
