I have been fortunate to live in Asia and Europe being exposed to a myriad of art. While living in Richmond UK, I enrolled in a Gallery Studies course for three years. I studied the disciplines in architecture, film, furniture design and their evolution in conjunction with the arts’ movements.
I have made a natural progression from studying art to creating it. Marrying these two loves, so when I am not painting, I continue to explore galleries, museums and artists studios. I began my training in England taking studio level courses and am refining my craft through classes and workshops in the U.S. I have attended classes and workshops at RISD (Rhode Island School of Design), The New Art Center in Newton, South Shore Art Center, West Hartford Art League, Creative Arts Workshop/New Haven, CT, Yale University and the British Art Museum
I began showing my work in November 2002 and have been included in many juried exhibitions at museums and galleries. Loving the uniqueness and freedom to delve into so many mediums I continue to specialize in collage and mixed media.
My work has been shown at the Donovan Gallery in Tiverton Four Corners, R.I., The Brick Gallery, Essex, CT., zoë & floyd in Seymour, CT, Boston City Hall, The Dillon Gallery in Cohasset, Ma., The Shop Space Gallery in The Guilford Art Center, Elm City Artists Gallery, Art Space & John Slade Ely House in New Haven, CT. Currently my work shows at Celebrations in Pomfret, CT. and Five Crows Art Gallery in Natick, MA. I am an elected artist at New Haven Paint and Clay where my work has been exhibited at the John Slade Ely House, and. a Gallery Artist with the South Shore Art Center in Cohasset, MA.
My paintings are in private collections nationally and internationally
