My studies at Holy Cross and at Bard focused on decorative arts and design. I studied in Florence, Italy for one year and in Chiang mai and Bangkok, Thailand as a Fulbright Scholar, and spent ten years working in the arts in New York City. Newly resettled in my hometown of Scranton, I'm refreshed by the natural beauty of Northeastern Pennsylvania. 


I am motivated to express a calming mood in my work, marked by bright warm and deep cool colors taking shape in organic, unfussy forms. I work as an Art Teacher at ArtWorks, a fine art studio and gallery serving adults with special needs. I live with my canine companion Ivy, a mini-hairless xoloitzcuintle with a heart of gold.


Send your best, always.
