I grew up in New York and have had an appreciation of art all my life. 

After receiving a BA in Fine Art I pursued a career in retail management and advertising sales. I was able to use my creativity and art background in these fields, but felt a strong desire to create art; yet never made the time to do so. Now I have decided to “pursue my passion”, as they say. 

Taking classes and workshops with Long Beach artists Annie Clavel and Gobind Boyes as well as Tom Fong, has put me  on my path. Working mostly in watercolor, oil and photography, I love the process of observing a subject and making it come to life with my own unique view.

Travel is my other passion. Having visited 25 countries, and counting, experiencing new cultures, customs and cuisine is so enriching and inspiring for me.

I hope you enjoy my work as much as I enjoy creating it.
