Artist Statement

I was born in Bronxville, New York and before I was even a year old my brother and I moved with our parents to Europe. We settled in Paris and spent the summer months on the island of Ibiza till I was 8 years old. We moved back to the States and settled in Darien, Connecticut. Having lived in Europe those few years changed the way I saw the world. My heart and mind were forever open to diversity, and culture. I always gravitated towards the Mediterranean aesthetic. 

Coming from an art rich background, I was fortunate to have creative parents who recognized my talents at an early age and encouraged me to pursue my passion. I received a BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art. After graduating in 1995, I continued my painting practice and began to exhibit my work at galleries and art spaces on the East Coast.

In 1997, I moved to Sonoma, California and continued my painting practice and also began working in art administration and teaching at the Sonoma Community Center. I began teaching art classes to young and old and became the Fine Arts Director, hiring nationally known artists to teach  workshops and guest lectures. During this time I found my love of teaching. The most inspired time teaching was encouraging artist and non-artista alike to find the fun in letting go, unplugging and tapping into their creative selves. I now teach workshops in my home studio as well as out in beautiful locations around the Bay Area. I have solo & group shows throughout the year as well as permanent venues that have my work. Current spots to see my work in person:

My paintings are in private and public collections around the country. The newest addition to my portfolio is a public art project for The City of Santa Rosa, Out and About project. 4 large scale mural on pillars flanking East and West side of Fourth Street.
