I've had a passion for art, design and creative endeavors throughout my life, but I did not have the opportunity to pursue formal training in the fine arts until I decided to leave behind an established career in Marketing and Branding in 2006.  After taking exploratory classes in drawing, painting and sculpting at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts  I parlayed these efforts into building a portfolio and gaining acceptance into  PAFA’s Certificate program with a Merit Scholarship. 

I have shown my work in many  juried shows, exhibitions and venues in and around Philadelphia including PAFA, the Philadelphia Sketch Club, Square Pear Gallery, Beauty Gallery, The Palette and the Page, the Wayne Art Center, Chester County Art Association, the Wallingford Community Arts Center and the Delaware, Chester and Montgomery County Studio Tours.

 In recent years I expanded my focus to pursue my interest in design and love of flowers by earning a Certificate in Floral Design from Longwood Gardens.
