I’m a watercolor painter, alchemist, and puzzle designer based in Rehoboth MA. My journey started after finally accepting my internal battle with Ulnar Nerve Syndrome and through a love of interior design began a journey with art fulltime. Through my education and trials in graphic design & multi-media, I began to focus on specifically using watercolor art to help intentionally curate the spaces where we live our lives to reflect what we love and value most in this world.
I received my Bachelor of Arts in interior design from, the former, Mount Ida College in 2006. After several years of working in lighting design and several years in freelance graphic design & retail, I began to develop an interest in watercolor painting. I spent four years mentoring under Award Winning Architectural Illustrator and Watercolor Painter, Frank M. Costantino, where my interest turned into a passion.
Now a Signature member of the Rhode Island Watercolor Society, I enjoy creating realism art, however, I’m always searching for new ways to expressively paint watercolor and design unique art collections, such as my current laser cut, studio made, puzzles. I am drawn to and renewed by nature, culture, photography, and food for my paintings inspirations. It’s never all about the analog work of making art, although it is admittedly a favorite activity. No; creating in the studio is about connecting others to moments, stories, and experiences that make our unique worlds and environments truly enjoyable.
You can find me eating avocados, hiking, photographing, and tree bathing as often as I can, all while living with family and painting in my home studio.
