Inspired by post-impressionism with a focus on color and line over realism, I spend my days painting in my studio in Alexandria, Virginia. My pieces tend to have an inherent softness and stillness about them; a quiet moment in a loud and busy world. I enjoying playing with color and medium, creating something full of warmth and Allowing my pencil lines to show and often adding paper or wax crayon to my paintings, they become a true harmony of color and texture.
I majored in art in college, but shifted focus slightly for graduate school and received my M.F.A. in Costume Design. I've worked in several different fields; I've design costumes for plays, musicals, and operas, but I always ended up returning to my first love: painting.
My art and design work have been shown in both the U.S. and abroad. My work has been sold through Anthropologie and, in partnership with Minted, can be seen on the set of Home & Family on the Hallmark Channel. I currently live and work in metro-Washington, D.C. with my husband and our two cats and am a member of the Torpedo Factory Artists' Association.
