I come from an artistic family and spent most of my life doing some form of artwork. I went to the Traphagen School of Fashion in NYC for Pattern Illustration and I also attended the Art Student’s League for fine art. I worked for a computerized clothing pattern company in NJ drawing sewing instructions for their patterns. I then had an opportunity to work for a major consumer product company in their telecommunications department and then later was promoted to their IT department as a computer support specialist and programmer.

Currently I work with both traditional and digital art. I design dance costumes (I am also a seamstress, I normally sew the costumes I’ve designed) for ballroom and I also design logos. For my design work I always draw on paper and then when it’s finished I transfer it to the computer for layout. 

For my fine art, my favorite media is pencil.   I have also worked in oils, pen and ink and pastels.     A few years ago I started working with a tablet, a stylus and painting software on my computer. There was a bit of a learning curve to it, but it allows for many types of media with a minimal amount of supplies. With my computer background, I can merge both my technical side and my artistic side. 

My photography over the past few years has turned to mainly wildlife and nature. I used to do dance photography and studio photography, but there’s something I just love about capturing nature and animals in photos. Someone asked once what is it that compels you to photograph flowers and animals. Photography freezes a moment, you get to see things in a still shot that you don’t see in action. After uploading the photo to the computer (today’s version of a darkroom) you see so much more than what you saw while photographing the subject.

I am from New Jersey, where I lived until 2008 when I, my husband and two dogs moved to Fort Worth, Texas. It was a big move, but a good one. Our daughter graduated from college here, she got married here and now they have a baby.

My website is evolving, I am hoping for it to be ready soon. The photos and artwork that I will sell here are all printed on archival fine art paper or canvas. I hope you enjoy the website and thank you for visiting.
