Background

Born in Brooklyn and raised by the ocean in Far Rockaway, Queens, the world’s finest art was only a subway token away. At Queens College, she studied painting under some of the 20th century’s revolutionary abstract expressionists and art historians.  Her masterful professors inspired her to continue studying art history and draw upon the skills of the masters for inspiration.

Inspiration:

  • New York City architecture, skyscrapers, streets, and bridges; roller coasters; and long-extinct pastries of mid-century Brooklyn.
  • Visits to Scotland, Portugal, France, Spain, Amsterdam, coastal United States, Southwestern U.S. and Alaska and Hawaii.
  • Studies of East Asian painting and design philosophy
