Artist Biography

I grew up a few miles outside the farm town of Celina, Ohio near the Indiana border. From the time I was three years old I remember being fascinated by looking at and making art. I studied painting and drawing at Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Some years after receiving my degree I moved from Cincinnati to New York where I eventually found work as a graphic designer but continued to study painting at Hunter College, Parsons, and the Art Students League.

In 2005 on a sabbatical from my job I began painting regularly at home in my apartment, gradually building up a body of work. I rented a studio in 2010 and decided to pursue a career as an exhibiting artist.

I live with my husband in Hoboken, New Jersey.


My paintings of imaginary animals are derived from internet photos, garden ornaments, and toys. With their fractured forms and kaleidoscopic colors, my paintings wryly evoke our often conflicting internal and external worlds. I am also the creator of the cartoon blog “”.
