My artistic journey has taken me through the halls of Indiana University, where I honed my skills and earned my BFA, to Washington, D.C., where my art found a place in local galleries. Later, I sought inspiration in the energy of New York City, dedicating four years to studying painting at the renowned Art Students League.
Embracing change, my studio thrived in New York for years, infusing my work with a unique urban essence. Now, located in the Hudson Valley, each day brings new inspiration from nature's ever-changing wonders, enriching my creative spirit.
As a testament to the growth of my art, I also incorporate manmade materials, such as masks used during the 2020 pandemic, into my textured abstract paintings. These elements contribute to my response to a challenging time.
Join me on this artistic odyssey where colors dance, textures speak, and the essence of nature fuses with my imagination. Through my work, I express a profound appreciation for the world around us and the connection we share with nature's ever-unfolding canvas.
