Born and bred in New York State, then moving to Georgia/ Florida, then to California, I've been an artist since the age of two. Through my life I've pursued many media but during my teens I centered on drawing and painting. In college I majored in painting, earning my BA. I stopped painting after college but found art quilts which eventually led to painted works. Currently I'm a professional artist selling my work and creating a line of jackets altered using my painted and quilted fabric.
