"I am a sensory illusionist. I gather the experience of being in a moment, at a place, at a time. I use that information to create the image. It is the sense of how the light and the color filters through the image and the atmosphere you might be surrounded by at that moment in time."
"I was lucky to have grown up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where there were incredible arts programs, including through the Carnegie Museum. I began my art education through public schools and in museum programs. Later, I attended the Tyler School of Art, Temple University in Philadelphia and Rome, Italy. I left school for a year to move to Los Angeles, California and received my B.F.A. from the University of Southern California. Subsequently, I took postgraduate courses at UCLA. Years later, after moving to New Mexico, the Southwest inspired my multi-dimensional art practice.”
