Artist Bio:
Born in Cambridge, MA 1966 and educated in Boston during my youthful years, I have a profound passion and admiration for many forms of art. My father was a superb artist whose works were more spiritual inspired. I used to love to watch him turn a blank canvas into an incredible work of art.

During my youth, I participated in several art contests as well as arts and craft shows. My passion and work during my teen years was photography, abstract art and flower arrangement.

I had a great passion for art as a child. In 1979, I participated in the Cambridge art show. I was awarded second place for my original work in water color.

I specialized in gladiolus flowers for my arrangements. In 1986, I won first place as well as best in show. I would participate in shows via the Grange as well as other local groups. I would continue to show and won a total of 9 ribbons in 2 years.

I spent many years during my young adult years traveling the USA, exploring and learning about local culture. I found great inspiration in the most unusual places. I currently reside in Western MA with my grown children. I love to be creative in many forms such as bringing old furniture to life in an artistic appearance; abstract painting on canvas and photography. With the exception of Art Major in High school, most of my education comes from my father’s teachings as well as my personal experiences.

My photography is currently displayed at Gallery 131 West Springfield, MA


I have always had a passion for art and photography. Even though I am for my part camera shy, I enjoy being behind the camera taking every opportunity to document and capture unique moments. I love bold colors in my artwork and equally enjoy black and white for my photography. Currently I am working on several of my series in black and white which are proudly displayed at the galleries listed above.
