Basically, I love to draw!
I’ve been drawing since I was about 4 or 5, at least, that’s my earliest memory and I often got into trouble for drawing on the insides of book covers! I moved on to portraiture at age 16, branching out into fashion by 18. My illustration idols were George Stavrinos, as well as Maxfield Parrish, Erté, Gruau and Alphonse Mucha.
I’ve been an advertising layout artist and an art director for 2 major department stores and a full time illustrator for a publishing company. I’ve done illustrations for books, magazines, web sites, religious candles, posters and clothing. I draw both digitally and traditionally and often combine the two.
My fine art is done entirely in colored pencil and is available for purchase as originals and prints. For a listing of exhibits and awards please click here.
Originally from Lawrence, MA, I now live in CT with my husband and 3 boys.
