I graduated from the University of Connecticut with a degree in Fine Arts that emphasized stone lithography. I continued my studies at San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, Tunxis College and Central Connecticut State University. My work has won awards at Mystic’s annual art show and the National Arts Program. They have been exhibited at the New Britain Art League, UCONN Health and the Birds Nest Gallery in Guilford.
The art pieces you will find are the culmination of years of observation, training, and experimentation. I have always been fascinated with the human figure. The variety of shapes and gestures, lines and patterns is endless. I find the human body a subject of incredible beauty and mystery. My love of travel has taken me around the world, giving me a unique perspective on the arts from a wide variety of cultures.
I start with an idea of what I want to achieve with each piece, but the paintings and collages can grow into something of their own during creation. I find traditional painting a challenge that I love. My collages often use layers of colors and pictures from a variety of materials, often from napkins.
My goal is to touch the viewer both artistically and emotionally.
