I come from Northern Virginia, have grown in a household in which creativity
is encouraged. I became aware of my artistic interests at an early age. My
mother, who also loves art, was a key factor. I attained a Bachelor of Fine
Arts from the Maryland Institute, College
of Art in 1992. At that
time, I experimented with many mediums.
Among them, photography, would consolidate itself as most enduring. After
graduation, having worked mostly with oils , I started experimenting with watercolors.
Family priorities resulted in a hiatus that
lasted for some years. I approached the Arts again in 2010. I strive to explore
the limitless possibilities watercolor painting offers and admire the endless
effects that can be obtained. I paint a
variety of subject matter, plein air, from life or from photos. What
most stimulates my interest are the seemingly commonplace moments or scenes
that might otherwise be overlooked. I try to convey the concepts I envision through
the medium. I endeavor to apply myself daily in the hope to improve skills and
I live in Rome, Italy
with my husband and two daughters.
