Growing up in Delaware I loved art, making art, and family vacations at the beach every summer. When I went to college in Massachusetts I majored in Art History. Then I moved to New York City where I briefly went to graduate school in Art History, worked in arts administration for several years and ultimately made a career switch to Psychology. I’ve been a Psychologist for over 20 years now. I made art here and there during those years, always intending to do more someday. Finally, just a few years ago, I started painting again and haven’t stopped. I do both representational and abstract work, and am drawn to nature and color and light. I still live and work in New York City, now identifying both as a therapist and as an artist. I try to approach my paintings the same way I approach my clients - with an openness and a commitment to their potential.
