I'm in love with connection. My work is all about it.  Whether it's connection with other people, connections with animals, or connections with the past.  I'm constantly looking for that sense of belonging we all crave.

I'm essentially a self taught artist and have been drawing since I was a child. My earliest works were portraits. I spent hours and hours drawing faces of models from fashion magazines.  I studied art history in college but eventually went on to work in other fields. 

After years of essentially ignoring my love of painting, with sewing and jewelry making as my only creative outlets, I began to miss the feel of paints on my hands.  In 2012, I started to paint again.

I quickly rekindled my love of portraits and began to add animals to the mix.

Today, I'm exploring those connections with the life around us in bright beautiful technicolor.
