I am a wife, a mother, an educator and an artist. I spent my childhood in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. I had inspiring and compassionate art teachers in every school I attended. They inspired me to become an educator. I had the privilege to be a volunteer for four years for the Broward County Public Schools in the Meet the Masters Art Education Program. I very much enjoyed art education at the elementary level. Not only was it extremely fun, it was an incredible hands-on learning experience. I credit Meet the Masters with awakening my inner artist. I went from approaching art as a subject of study to embarking on a journey to find myself as an artist.
I have a background in Hospitality and Tourism Management and I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Millersville University of Pennsylvania. I was fortunate to complete and participate in the Art Galley Docent Programs at the Florida Institute of Technology's Foosaner Art Museum and the Orlando Museum of Art. I very much enjoyed leading the children's tours throughout the Foosaner. It was very rewarding to introduce children to the wonderful world of art. I am very blessed to have had so many exciting and enriching opportunities to work with children and the general public. My professional experiences and educational training have brought me great joy and a deeper appreciation for the arts.
I try to reuse/recycle/re-purpose as much as possible. My current focus is on acrylic painting, fluid art, mixed media and intuitive painting. I very much enjoy experimenting with new styles and mediums. Doing what I love each day is truly a gift and I never take it for granted.
