Art has been a part of my life from an early age, starting with my taking private lessons as a child, taking almost every available art class in high school (both at Downingtown high school and at University of the Arts on Saturdays), to majoring in art in college. I became the graphic and web designer for my family's company after college and now I'm getting back into the fine art side of things. Currently, I enjoy working in watercolor and even more so, gouache. I work with gouache most because of its' versatility to act fluid like watercolor but also to be rich in color like acrylic. My favorite subject is nature so I paint a lot of landscapes because art is like an escape from life's worries for me.
