In 1996, I decided to follow a dream and enrolled as a student in the certificate program at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Art (PAFA). For the previous 15 years, I had worked in private school education. First at the Springside School in Chestnut Hill and then at the Baldwin School in Bryn Mawr.

In 2002, I left PAFA and moved to Maine. There, I traveled, worked in a small gourmet market, and painted from my own studio.Life in Maine expanded in 2004 to include winters in Provence, France, where I moved full- time in 2006. Again, I was fortunate enough to have a studio and continued to draw and paint.

In the autumn of 2014, I returned to Philadelphia, where I now live and work.
