At an early age, I imagined a world waiting to be explored beyond the borders of the small New England town where I lived.
A passion of making clothes as a young girl, led to a career in the fashion industry and new life in New York. While traveling the globe in pursuit of fabrics and new designs, it because apparent that the true bonus of the career was the exposure to cultures and people around the world.
All artists are influenced by their surroundings. My exposure to the lifestyle and landscape of India, Southeast Asia & Europe provided an almost encyclopedic amount of inspiration.
Since then, my art has been an ongoing exploration and creative process, influenced by my travels and ongoing life.
Painting is a journey of expression. It takes time and patience but rewards with great joy.
