Biography/Contact Me

I have a BFA in fashion illustration from Moore College of Art in Philadelphia and am a signature member of the following watercolor societies:  PWCS, PWS, BWS and AWS.  I have illustrated children’s books, have won various awards in local and national watercolor exhibitions and was recently featured in an 8-page article in American Artist Magazine.  I also belong to several art leagues and groups, and currently volunteer as newsletter editor for the American Watercolor Society (AWS).  I am represented in art galleries in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware.

That is one part of my make-up as an artist.

Another part is the continuous appreciation and education of the art world.  Its source comes from personal experimentation, diversity of venues, commission work and most importantly from the community and family of my fellow artists that keep me refreshed, replenished, and energized.
