About the Artist
Hello! I am an artist living in Bedminster, New Jersey with my husband and two children. I have a home studio where I go to create art, teach or just retreat from the world. I consider myself to be a self taught artist and have not had much formal art training. I value my background and experience because I think my approach to the art making process is natural and organic. I have always experimented with materials and techniques and have developed a very playful approach to creating my work.
With a background in the fashion industry, I worked for many years as a designer. Through this work I developed a sense for color, pattern, and proportion which informs my artwork. As a designer, I also watched cultural trends and how they affect our daily lives. This high altitude perspective is something that continues with my current work. Very often, themes such as the environment, social patterns and manmade structures appear in my paintings. In addition to my fashion experience, I founded the now defunct Wellspring community school in Gladstone, NJ. This progressive educational environment brought together the best holistic methodologies to create a child centered, community focused learning space. My administrative and teaching experience at Wellspring have blossomed into my own process driven art instruction for children.
