Hello.

A little bit about me...

I am a self proclaimed art nerd (nearly as obsessed with Excel formulas as I am art!) living in the colorful, lively, and sometimes gritty city of Philadelphia with my husband (practically a saint for putting up with my overzealous excitement for new art projects and ridiculous invention ideas), 18 year old daughter (a fiercely self motivated brainiac who has just left the nest to start her first year of college!), and 7 year old son (a cool little artist who is such a loving guy that he also answers to the name "Woodstock").

I have always been amazed at the power art has to evoke emotion and feeling which has driven me to seek out and strive to create work that makes my heart beat a little bit faster and my life feel a little bit fuller. It seems that it is the one thing that can both ground me and also set me free.

Learning to use and incorporate new mediums, colors, subject matter, and style elements makes me buzz with excitement. Challenges to push myself artistically make me wide-eyed and eager; from researching content for a new project to learning how to use a new art tool - I thrive off of each step of the creative process.
