Inspired by spending summers on my grandmother's farm I have always enjoyed the beauty of the natural landscape.
I graduated from F.I.T. (Fashion Institute of Technology) and Pratt Institute with degrees in fashion design. The opportunity to expand my experience in a variety of textiles, textures and colors came through working with thousands of yards of fabric over the years. Those experiences helped sculpt my direction in painting.
The early years of my career were in New York City designing children's wear. After moving to Cambridge New York with my husband, to raise our family, I focused more on costume design and construction for two decades in the Theater Department at Bennington College.
Currently, I create texture and design through a variety of medium. Most days I can be found bringing design and beauty to one of my gardens, through culinary expression, or painting.
"As an artist, I try to capture the texture and color from the different visual influences in my life that tell a story. My hope is that the energy and emotion of my work transmits that story to others"
