I studied advertising design and illustration at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn NY. I have participated in many recent local and regional shows. Last year, I won the competition for a limited edition print for Women in Construction Annual Meeting. I like to paint whatever comes into my line of vision and captures my interest. Sometimes the most interesting things are right under our noses. I have had honorable mentions in the online Singular Creation show, "Seasons" and the Upstream Gallery annual show.
