My interest in art begin at a very early age. I grew up in Pennsylvania and attended the art institute of Pittsburgh, graduating with a degree in fashion illustration. Over the years my interest in varying aspects of the creative process grew to include pottery, glass bead making, metalworking and painting. I am currently working on collage pieces that include magazine papers and my own hand printed papers. Along with the passion of creating, I also love teaching and currently have a painting class at a local community Center.
