My use of mixed media represents the complexity of my personal experiences and desire to make sense of my existence. My choice to combine abstract, organic forms, representational imagery, and pattern designs demonstrates my search for harmony, balance, and rhythm, which are essential to my work.
I am an American mixed media artist who lives in Swindon, Wiltshire, England.
My interest in Art began at an early age-from making clothes for my Barbie dolls, to borrowing How to Draw books at the local library, to then being fascinated with shiny coloured papers which I used to create abstract collages.
I studied Art at the High School of Music and Art and Textile Surface Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology, both in New York.
I later received a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree as well as a certification in Art Education at New Jersey City University in New Jersey.
While creating and exhibiting my artwork in the New York and New Jersey area, I have taught Art in Jersey City, Bayonne and Hoboken to children ages 3-18.
Since making the move to England with my husband and son, I have exhibited in Swindon, Bradford on Avon and Newbury. Currently, I teach Art part time at a local primary school while staying creative.
