I have always expressed myself through art and creativity. I am primarily self-taught, although my explorations have included many individual classes at local art centers and online. I am a member of the Carriage Barn Arts Center and Rowayton Arts Center, and I have participated in juried shows at those locations and many others around Connecticut. I have focused on the study and practice of abstract art for about five years, and I feel that I have found my artistic "home" with abstract. I work with acrylics and mixed media, usually on cradled wood panels. My other passions are genealogy and travel, both of which regularly provide a starting point or inspiration for my art.
