I started painting, drawing and creationg at a very early age. It also helped growing up in an artistic family business in glass. I learned skills in painting, firing,and forming glass. I opened my own studio designing and fabricating glass windows, lighting, and home acessories. I spent 2 years in Germany exibiting in trade shows. When I returned to tha States I completed my Bachelors Degree in the Visual Arts from S.U.N.Y. I then completed my Masters Degree in Rehabilitation. I worked for the State of Ct as an Art Therapist. I maintained my commissioned work in stained glass and reverse painting in lighting. I continued to experiment in formulating and refining my passion with impasto and porcelain.
