I grew up playing with color, paint and textiles in my family’s business. I saw my father, who trained at NYC’s Art Students League, explore many techniques ranging from cartooning to oil painting; antiquing furniture to designing models and miniatures; and finally settling on architecturally-inspired pen & ink, bringing him full circle to the medium that first brought him to art.
I’ve always been drawn in my love of art to ceramics, metalwork, jewelry, textile and modern art. My career in children’s publishing incorporates my longtime love of illustration with my passion for helping artists succeed in their careers.
I am fortunate to own original artwork by many artists I work with and admire, and their work has in turn influenced my own in ceramics, fiber art and design.
