I dreamed of being an artist as a kid, but built a career in technology and management consulting which spanned decades. I loved it. I channeled my creativity into my job—building businesses, inventing new products, creating growth strategies, building great teams.

My art making is centered in play and growing up in rural PA, as suburbia unfolded, offered rich possibilities for that. I remember making up new games endlessly with my childhood friends. And in those days I was wildly interested in all things art. I learned to sew (that yellow pinafore sundress was a real beauty). I went to art school on Saturdays, painted stage sets for the regional theater. Later my art life found home in museums and travel to art-inspiring places around the world. Then, as now, art was never to far from center.

Always guided by the question- “What is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” (Mary Oliver)- I finally decided to refocus on my passion for art. I completed the Certificate Program at Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 2019. I loved going back to school with students decades younger—I learned so much from them.

Today, I enjoy a full-time studio practice in the Philadelphia suburbs. ​My inspiration comes from a love of the outdoors, the childlike wonder of play, invention and exploration- those endless days of full self expression, being fresh, alive and free. It is this attitude that I am called to deliver in each piece of art  so that they I can share this abundance with you.

I love making art, including the moments when things don’t go my way. But most of all I love connecting with people who love my work as much as I have loved creating it.
