After receiving degrees from Pratt Institute and Ringling College of Art and Design, I moved to Ithaca, New York where I currently have a beautiful studio in one of the oldest parts of town. I’m inspired by my surroundings, the people I meet, artists across the globe, and the great masters of our past.

In 2014 I was invited to paint with the Putney Painters in Vermont, and was inducted as a member in 2016. It has been a great privilege to study with Master Painters Richard Schmid and Nancy Guzik, along with other wonderful artists. Their generosity has helped me to hone my skills and continues to push me to refine my own artistic voice.
