I attended Syracuse University for design and after graduation became a graphic artist, web designer and developer. In 2006 I decided to go back to school for my master’s in Painting and Illustration driven by a desire to show my son that he should pursue his passion. I attended the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. Since graduating in 2010 I have been teaching art and painting full time. I have always loved and been drawn to horses and other animals and in graduate school, I combined my love of painting with my love of horses and started focusing on painting horses in motion. Having grown up in upstate NY, I began painting thoroughbreds at Saratoga and upon moving to Maui, transitioned to painting polo ponies. I met my husband, a fantastic Colorado artist in 2014 while he was in Maui for an art show. In 2015 my son and I moved to Colorado. I am so excited to be living where beautiful landscapes, horses, and wildlife are abundant sources of inspiration. My two amazing, unique, and beautiful children are also a constant source of inspiration.
