I have been doing art my whole life and it has become something that I can rely on to center myself.  I am very passionate about all types of art and I believe everyone has the ability to express themselves in a creative way.  I specialize in fine art – acrylic paintings and mixed media art.  I also make jewelry including necklaces, bracelets and earrings using mostly recycled items.

I recently started a business with a friend of mine called Brush+Needle. It is a collaboration between fine art (my art) and craft (her art).  We will be selling our handmade goods at art markets and fairs this summer.  Our website is brushandneedle.wix.com/brushandneedle.  I did all of the artwork and jewelry that is shown on the website.
