I am an art educator and artist working in Rhode Island.  I graduated from Rhode Island College with a bachelor's degree in art education and a concentration in oil painting.

My current work is the result of an internal need to create. It's an outlet, discipline and passion for me. Focusing on the overlooked aspects of my surroundings has led me to create pieces that magnify the seemingly insignificant. My primary subject matter and passion is oysters! I've been fascinated with each shell’s unique depth and luminosity. I strive to render the delicate yet strong nature of these seaside treasures through my paintings.

Since becoming a Jamestown resident several years ago, the rugged beauty of the island has inspired my work as well. Creating textural landscapes in an effort to preserve a moment in time, the feeling of a day, or the memory of a mood.
