Many artists say they knew they wanted to be an artist at the age of three, and spent their childhoods obsessively drawing and painting. Not me. As a child, I was a cross between a tomboy and a geek, and loved math and science more than anything else.


I stumbled upon art as an adult, and it quickly became an all-consuming passion. I immersed myself in studio art classes at some of the best art schools around, including the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and Massachusetts College of Art. I entered juried national competitions and was accepted into several, led to more advanced study and exploration of new mediums.


In addition to national juried shows, my work has now been exhibited in group exhibitions in Boston landmarks including Boston City Hall, International Place, the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, and the Prudential Center. Solo exhibitions include Imagination and Memory at the Landau Gallery in Belmont, MA; Sacred Spaces at the Acton, MA Public Library; and Expressive Landscapes at the Harris A. Berman Diversity Gallery at Tufts Health Plan in Watertown, MA. I was named one of five "standout artist to keep an eye on" in Maine Home + Design's September 2017 issue, was a a featured artist in  artmaine's 2017 annual guide, and was named one of Maine's most collectible artists in artmaine's 2019 annual guide.  My art is in homes across the U.S and Canada, as well as in Europe, Australia and Saudi Arabia, and is also in several corporate art collections, including: Boston Children's Hospital, East Boston Community Health Center, and American Tower Corporation.


I love chatting about my work with people, and in ordinary times you will find me in my SoWa studio on First Fridays from 5-9 PM. Due to COVID-19, I will not be participating in any open studio events for the foreseeable future. Both my SoWa and Cape Elizabeth, ME studios are open by appointment only for individual client visits, with mandatory masking and social distancing.
