Bio: I started drawing and painting in kindergarten and never stopped! I was a studio art major in college concentrating in painting. My first job was as a stylist and costume designer. My interest and studies in history particularly French history (MA in french language and civilization NYU) led me to designing for opera and ballet in the 17th-19th c predominately. My sketches for the workroom were of interest to the companies for which I worked and continue to work - a 19th c opera in the 18th c style will be presented in NYC and Washington, D.C. in 2019 is my current project. Working in theatre led me to change mediums.

Mediums: Watercolor is my preferred medium. Watercolor suits my work as well as my schedule and I am very much enjoying pursuing this in Vero!

Why do you create art?: I have no idea! I just always have.       

What inspires your art?: history and painting. I visit museums constantly.
