I am originally from Baltimore, MD. While drawing to music in 3rd grade, my work drew the attention of the Art Specialist of Baltimore Public Schools who met with my parents to suggest I get art lessons. They enrolled me in every art camp and weekend program they could, even the Famous Artists School program (“Can you draw this?”). Eventually I became a student at private art studio where I was classically trained.
Through teaching I have learned to become more expressive and whimsical in my art. Because children can be tight when they try to create something for the first time, I introduced tearing paper instead of cutting it. Their enthusiasm was contagious so I decided to see what I could do using that technique. Boom! I was hooked. Paper mosaics and multi-media art.
I am happily married to my soulmate and biggest fan with children that inspire me.
