I have been drawing and making things ever since I can remember. And being passionate about everything artistic, I like to create in several styles and mediums. When I was a kid, my favorite thing was ball point pen on white cardboard. I learned some more advanced techniques when I studied printmaking and painting at Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia and Rome, where my abstract style was formed. After earning my BFA, I pursued an interest in silk painting, and worked as a freelance textile designer for women's apparel. Much of my painted silk has found its way into my non-representational assemblage art.
I love to design patterns and now work digitally as well as in watercolor, ink, color pencil and collage.
My love of drawing carries over to several markets: illustrations for children's books (I am a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators), fabric, gifts and home decor. My patterns are available for licensing.
It gives me great joy to create art, and I hope that it will bring you joy, too!
