I am 39 years young and I live in a lovely little city by the sea. I am a venturous baker, a soy candle-maker, a dreamer, a brown-eyed girl, a cat lover, a pisces, a not-so-neat freak, and a new mom. I am obsessed with my garden and I brake for squirrels. 

Inspired by history, literature and my everyday life, I often use myself as a model and employ various props to manifest ideas, emotions and sometimes specific characters. My most recent series is inspired by simple pleasures and the exuberant enjoyment of life, what the French refer to as “ joie de vivre” (and also by my daughter’s nursery). 

Soon after receiving my B.F.A. from the University of New Hampshire, I opened Three Graces, an art gallery in downtown Portsmouth, NH. After 10 gratifying years I closed the gallery and have since been dividing my new-found freedom between family, teaching and other creative pursuits.
