IMG_9900Art is the one constant thread that runs throughout my life.  I interpret what I see and feel into my paintings, be it an awesome storm, a tragic shooting, or an incredible sunset; it is cathartic for me to express my emotions through the paint.

I studied Fine Art at Muncin, Williams, Proctor Arts Institute, SUNY Utica, and Fashion Design at Parson’s School of Design, New York City, earning an AAS and BFA respectively.  I worked as a designer, married, raised our children and moved around the country quite a bit during that time.  I have settled down, for the most part, in Park City, Utah, spending the mud seasons in New York City.  That is the plan for now, a great balance of country vs. city life.

I rekindled my passion for painting in 2008.  Sharing my art has been a wonderfully rewarding journey in ways that I had never expected.  I enjoy being part of an artistic community, participation in shows, exploring art in my travels, learning to navigate social media, and selling my work.
