about

I have had the privilege of growing up surrounded by art and artists. I’m a third generation artist, which has allowed me to have ongoing exposure to all facets of the art world. Museum and gallery trips, studio visits, and art school have all been a part of the journey, bringing me to where I am today. I was formally trained at The George Washington University in Fine Art & Art History. From painting and drawing to bookbinding and knitting, I create art in all mediums.
