About the Artist
Aside from teaching high school art since 2004, for nearly 20 years I have painted custom murals, created original acrylic and oil paintings, designed and created theatrical costumes and set painting and made bespoke personalized gifts.
I also create custom logos and websites for new or established businesses & offer print services, and I recently finished a new body of work some which have been on exhibition the Zakin Gallery in Demarest, NJ, and The society of the Arts in Garnerville, NY as well!
In addition, I have 16 years of theatrical costume and makeup design, as well as set painting experience for our tremendous musical theater program, most recently winning the 2017 NJ Metro award for costume design for our production of Tarzan and being nominated for the award 5 years in a row. I have also costumed shows for The New Players Theater co. in Ridgewood NJ.
I hold my BFA from Montclair State University 2004 and my MFA from Christ Church University in Canterbury, England UK 2010.
Art has always been a passion for me and I believe that anyone can create something to be proud of with the right guidance and inspiration.
I also believe that hand-painted work in the home, business, or on stage is much more exciting than stickers on a wall and should be accessible and done with excellence. I aim to bring my hand-painted work to anyone who wants to experience having original art in their life in many facets.
