I graduated from the Arts Institute of Pittsburgh, PA with an associated Degree in Specialized Advertising. I have been passionate about the arts ever since I started drawing cartoons from the Sunday Paper at 9 years old. I worked for 7 years as the Executive Director of the Phelps Art Center in Phelps NY and expanded my understanding of the Business of Art in that position, continuing to carry my passion into now creating art for deeper and more profound exhibiting.
