Born and raised in Vineland, NJ, I took art lessons throughout my childhood and majored in art at Vineland High School. I studied Costume and Set Design and Fine Arts at Rowan University, and received my BS in Art Therapy at Springfield College in Massachusetts in 1996.

I began painting for friends and family in the 1990’s, making it a full-time business in 2003. Over the years, I have worked for dozens of clients, painting their homes, vacation homes and businesses. I have also worked with several interior designers in southern New Jersey.
