When artists are born they immerge with a sense of wonderment. I was born an artist, always gazing, imagining thoughts on surfaces, stimulating inspiration from deep within. My passion for the art world promulgated me to center my life around my calling. I achieved my bachelors degree from the State University of New York College at Cortland majoring in Fine Art and minoring in Art History. I then pursued a successful career as a Textile Designer in Manhattan.I spent the beginning of my career focused on the commercial end of the arts. To fuel my constant need for learning I continued my education and went on to receive a Masters of Art Education from Long Island University at C.W.Post.Presently I teach Fine Art for the Sayville School District.Students' work continually inspires me.I immerse myself in the creative process of self-expression everyday.I welcome opportunities to display my work for others to become enveloped in my realm of artistic expression, which is blended with my life experiences.
