I am a Virginia Beach based artist, wife and mom. I'm torn between being a New Yorker at heart, where I was born & raised and loving my life as a coastal Virginian, where the Marine Corps brought us. I received my B.A. in Studio Art and later a Master in Fine Arts from The Savannah College of Art & Design.
I mostly use photos and acrylic paints. I love live flowers from my garden and around the Virginia Beach area including the Norfolk Botanical Garden. I search out the perfect bloom with my camera working on its composition knowing its going to become a painting. Each idea manifests in its own individual style.
I enjoy interior design and I paint what I would like to see on my own walls. In an increasingly difficult world, I try to find a moment where the world fades away in favor of something simple, natural and beautiful.
