About My Work
Surrounded by the beauty of rural Vermont I create artwork that celebrates nature. These mixed media pieces combine; acrylic paint, pigmented ink, and pen to form elements of painting, drawing, hand printed leaves, and collage. As I explore and learn about this complex ecosystem the wonderful colors and textures around me are reflected in my work. By sharing my love for nature and hope to inspire more people to actively and thoughtfully protect the natural world.
A portion of my art sales directly support my work for nature.

Art and nature have always been at my core even as a child growing up in East Northport, New York. My creativity was energized by a fascination with plants and animals. These interests lead me to the University of Massachusetts where I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1999. Having fallen in love with the natural beauty of New England, I remained; to create art, explore the landscape, and work with various art venues in Western Massachusetts. During this time, my desire to build a more direct connection to nature became a necessity. In 2018 my partner and I decided to leave our downtown conveniences for a cozy home hidden among 54 acres of woods in Southern Vermont. In this wonderfully inspiring place we learn how to improve habitat for wildlife and be good stewards of the forest. Striving to live a more harmonious life with nature both in action and aesthetics. I aspiring to create in collaboration with nature, expressing my creativity in the studio and in the land itself.
