I have been an artist all of my life. I use many different media types such as paint, clay, charcoal, textiles, and wood in my art. I have a background in textile arts and enjoy aspects such as spinning, weaving, felting, knitting, screen printing and embroidery. I am not one that remains exclusive to any one medium because they are all too wonderful not to enjoy! I tend to go from project to project each being much different than the last. Growing up, art was a creative outlet for a sometimes stressful upbringing. Art has been a therapy when nothing else has seemed to work. I live in the Northeastern part of the United States and am currently pursuing a BFA in fine Arts with a minor in psychology. My long term goals are to establish a studio open to the public and also incorporate a program specifically for veterans to use art as a therapy.
