I was born into a Philadelphia family of artists, musicians, actors and videographers, and from childhood, was always involved in anything creative. At age12, I was involved in the family ceramic business, followed by photography at age 15. In college, I became fascinated with the abstract after my first art history paper on Munch, but didn’t pick up a paintbrush until years later, when hardship threatened to conquer my life. Art is my savior! My work mirrors the fluctuation of emotions during a very traumatic period in my life with intermittent periods of light and dark.
My empathetic gift along with a very strong ancestral intuition, allows me to instinctively create my work without any preconceived subject. Instead of searching for a subject or object, I lay down the medium, find a glimmer of an element with which I resonate and chisel out and add to the piece until it reflects my innermost feelings
Art is my passion and a wonderful gift that allows me to view life from a much deeper perspective. It is a daily practice that involves my whole self, body, mind, and soul.
