Born in New York, I studied painting at University of the Arts. I also studied at the Corcoran Gallery summer program in Washington, DC, and took part of a show at the National Museum of Women in the Arts called, “Insomnia, Landscapes of the Night”.  My piece, “Hurricane/Gulf,” is in the Annapolis Volvo Collection in Annapolis, Maryland, and my work also received Award of Excellence from the University of Delaware Biennial. I earned Best Abstract at the Philadelphia Sketch Club, and honorable mention in Scenes of Schuylkill for “Market Street Bridge”.  I paint because it allows communication with others, as well as creating a new perspective, a sense of space and the unexpected.
