My work and my life are firmly entwined, the art part reflecting emotion and experience. I use a variety of media and technique with an emphasis on color and textural relationships. One body of work has often led to another and includes both 2-D and 3-D approaches. My education includes a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Manhattanville College and further visual arts study at Bennington College, Maryland School of Art and Design, The University of Urbino, Urbino, Italy and workshops at several art schools including The Art Institutes. I have exhibited work in juried and open shows in CT and NY and have permanent works in the Manhattanville College collection.
