After graduating from Princeton with a BA in Art History/Visual Arts, Waring spent her first summer painting in the Provencal village of Forcalquier. Her principal home for most of the next twenty years, this cultivated yet rugged landscape perfectly suited her artistic vision, providing inexhaustible inspiration. She has also spent time painting in Paris, Israel, Tahiti, and various parts of the U.S.. In 2008 Waring moved to Gloucester, MA, where her Home Studio is open year-round by appointment.
Waring has exhibited in over 40 solo shows, over 60 invitational or juried shows in the U.S. and France, and has won many awards. She is a member of Oil Painters of America, American Impressionist Society, North Shore Arts Association, Rocky Neck Art Colony, has shown at the Salon Des Artistes Français and the Salon d’Automne in Paris, and at the Currier Museum of Art. Her commissioned oil paintings are featured on Tru Fragrance & Beauty’s line of products. Waring is featured in “100 Artists of New England” (Schiffer 2011) and in “The American Flag in Contemporary Art”, (Schiffer, 2015). Notable collectors include Carl Crossman, art dealer and appraiser for Antiques Roadshow, U.S. CTO (2009-2014) Todd Park, Andre Agassi, and Brooke Shields.
