I have been drawing and making things ever since I can remember. I studied printmaking and painting at Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia and Rome, where my abstract style was formed. I am inspired by fragments, shapes, color and pattern. My abstract constructions are related to nature and landscape, but are studies in composition and layering, becoming their own realms. After completing 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 assemblage art and fiber jewelry.

I also create surface designs and illustrations, using digital and traditional media such as watercolor, ink, color pencil and collage. I love drawing people, animals, plants, everyday objects and food.
