Art has been a passion for me since I was little, especially realism. I am a graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC. Although I have benefited from a few other courses along the way, I’m mostly self-taught. My art journey has taken me from fashion illustration, to teaching K-8, to illustrating children’s literature, to art doll sculpting and design, and to landscape painting. The beauty I see here locally, and as I’ve traveled the US and abroad, have given me much inspiration for my work.
