MEET THE ARTIST

I was born and raised in suburban Philadelphia and currently live in West Chester, PA. My earliest exposure to fine art was when her mother volunteered in public elementary schools with a program called “Art Goes to School.” This innovative program exposed me to a variety of artists and their work. My father, an award-winning photographer, also influenced my own lens. This background, along with a liberal arts education, cultivated an appreciation for how art is a conduit of connection.
In my work I allow the flow of alcohol ink to organically form the structure of my paintings, suggesting botanical and landscape subjects. On occasion, I layer acrylic over the alcohol ink once it has dried. This method gives my piece added dimension and is also an incredibly soothing process. I also enjoy using fine liner pens to detail over the alcohol ink images. Usually the artwork can stand alone if I am satisfied with the layout. Either way, I enjoy this medium for its ability to express gratitude, hope, healing and self-acceptance.
