Every new painting is a deep breath. A new beginning to tell a story using color and creativity. Translating and provoking emotions are the primary focuses of my artwork. I strive to reproduce the varied facets of feelings through my deep fascination with color, and composition and the struggles that occur between them.
My creative process usually begins with a series of sketches, which serve as my inspirational catalyst to canvas, paper or wood. The techniques for the actual artwork often involve building up areas of color through the application of many layers of paint, latex, compounds and ink to achieve vibrant color effects and multitudes of texture.
My educational background includes Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Fine Arts and Education in addition to a Doctorate in Educational Leadership. I am a NY and NJ certified art teacher and I have been exhibiting my artwork since childhood. My life and career have been dedicated to the arts and education.
