The birth of my passion for art emerged during adolescence. It began with squiggles and line drawings morphing into colorful creations using a quill pen and brilliant colors of India ink. There were many art classes leading to a Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting from The College of Visual & Performing Arts at Syracuse University.
Exploration of a variety of mediums including drawing, painting, collage, sculpture, photography, printmaking and ceramics, all useful in the evolution of the artist I was to become. Following art school, I was drawn to the interior world of the human psyche and spent the next decade doing graduate and post-graduate studies and developing my career as a psychotherapist. Although, at that time my art took a backseat to my studies, my particular lens as an artist continued to inform and influence everything I encountered.
Over the years, I discovered that it was through the art of drawing and painting that I am best able to communicate the bold visual imagery that has become the vehicle for my artistic expression.
My art is a reflection of both my work as a psychotherapist and of my soul as an artist.
I feel very fortunate that at this time in my life I am able to indulge both of these passions.
