I love art…I love the creative process. My art is a personal observation on life and nature filled with images I’m inspired to document, although sometimes the work takes on a life of its own.
I’ve drawn on lessons learned from mentors as I refine and stay true to my own style. My goal is to continually learn, experiment and evolve, expressing myself with freedom, joy and gratitude.
I use mixed media and texture including acrylic paint, ink, watercolor, marker, colored pencil, oil paint, oil pastel and chalk pastel. I may also collage handmade paper, bits of printed images, words, letters, photographs, vintage post cards, string, fabric, shells and other various items and textures to add dimension.
My pursuit of knowledge in the arts continued with a BA (Arts and Communications), additional studies both locally and in France and online with various global artists. I have enjoyed my long-term membership in Associated Artists of Pittsburgh and its collaborative impact. As an Artist, a Gallery Owner and Coordinator of Art Exhibitions, I have endeavored to further immerse myself professionally in artistic ventures where self-expression and originality is encouraged and shared.
