Welcome! My site will be updated continually as more work is finished, which has been frequently lately.
A little about me: I'm a visual artist residing in my hometown of Pittsburgh, PA. Before returning to Pittsburgh in 2016, I lived for many years in New York City, where I studied Fine Arts at the Parsons School of Design and worked in the publishing industry.
After years of painting, I found fulfillment as an artist doing mosaics. In late 2017, I started devoting my creative time to making mosaic photo frames and mirrors, and eventually began branching out to many other mosaic forms. The tactile experience of cutting and setting the pieces and the intellectual challenge of fitting the pieces together provided me the outlet I was longing for, which painting alone never quite satisfied, even as I got more into mixed media. Artists' journeys are seldom straight, but as long as the desire is there, they will lead us to where we should be.
