I was born on a warm day in Buffalo, NY in 1983. My mentor, Maryann Kammer, taught me how to slow down and paint what was around me. After graduating from the University at Buffalo in 2005, I moved to Northern Virginia and started a career in teaching art.
I am continually inspired by slow-moving things, like reeds moving underwater, wind blowing through trees and day turning into night. I’m still rushing to slow down, mostly with oil paint.
You can see my work around here and there, but especially in Old Town Alexandria at 1799 Prime. Please visit them for a drink or contact me for a tour.
