Art has always played a major role in my life. As a child, my parents nurtured my creative abilities and desires by enrolling me in private art lessons. Many different avenues opened as I progressed through my work. I continued my art education through study at The Moore College of Art in Philadelphia, PA, Rowan University of Glassboro, NJ and The University of Rhode Island in Kingston, RI, from which I hold a BFA.
Throughout the years, I have explored a variety of mediums, including: three-dimensional design, photography, illustration, printmaking, pottery, and painting in oils, acrylics and watercolor. I enjoy creating work that captures the essence of a place, time, or an individual subject’s personality. When developing a work of art, I am always mindful of my use of color, light and form to bring a piece to its finished point. The entire process of creating a work is thoughtful, moving, and can be frustrating and exciting all wrapped tightly leaving a precious little gift when completed.
Along with developing my own work. I have the privilege of encouraging young students to express their own creativity by teaching lessons in a variety of mediums. I currently offer art lessons for all ages out of my private studio.
It is a great blessing to me each and every day that I am able to explore, create, express and teach art. My hopes are to pass along the same joy and passion to others.
