Growing up in a small semi-rural town in Northern New Jersey, I had a passion for four things: Art, Antiques, Music and Wildlife. My days were full of creative activity as I explored nearly every medium available to me. I began exhibiting, winning awards and selling my work in my teens. Upon graduation from high school I received a fine art scholarship and enrolled in Kutztown State University in Pennsylvania as a fine art major.
After earning my Bachelor of Fine Art degree, I focused on Wildlife Painting, Portraiture and Symbolic Still Life and sales of my work provided much needed income.
Today, I find inspiration in the colorful cultures of the American Southwest and the subtle beauty of the Arizona-Sonora desert, which I now call home. I still enjoy working in a variety of mediums as I make art, jewelry and up-cycled fashions featuring my love of bright colors, sumptuous textures, and all things vintage.
When not in my studio, I enjoy writing songs, singing and playing guitar and mandolin, both with my husband and in our band, “Alegrate!” (meaning “Rejoice” in Spanish), because “every day we wake up breathing is a reason to rejoice!”
“Creating beautiful handmade things of all sorts just comes very naturally to me”
