Populated within the natural environment my paintings are filled with female figures, animals, birds and nature coalescing to emerge and transcend to a spiritual realm through symbolism and allegory. Materials include gold, silver, palladium leaf, carved walnut wood and jewel tone oil colors that pulsate with wonder for the world she has felt since childhood. I work in oils with gold, silver, and palladium leaf. I earned my BA from the University of Pennsylvania, and attended the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Presently I am being mentored by Edward Povey. In 2020 I received the Bernadette Award from the National Association of Women Artists as well as an Honorable Mention in the All Women Show at J. Mane Gallery. I am a member of the International Guild of Realism (IGOR) and a Signature Member of Artists for Conservation.
