I was born and raised in the college town of Newark, Delaware and hold a bachelor’s degree from the University of Delaware. The first art show I participated in was over 20 years ago and included a series of miniature floral and animal paintings. I sold all ten paintings, was commissioned for ten more, and have been painting customized watercolors ever since.
I’m an outdoor enthusiast who loves downhill skiing, hiking, and horseback riding, so chose to live in some of the most beautiful areas in the US: the quaint New England town of Stowe, VT, a rural horse farm in Chesapeake City, MD, and near Jackson Hole beneath the majestic mountains of Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. I currently live in Tucson, AZ where I enjoy the beauty and solitude of the arid desert, including Saguaro, and other Southwestern National Parks. My experience living among these beautiful settings continue to give me a great source of inspiration for original fine art watercolors of various landscapes, florals, portraits, and animals.
The idea to paint around meaningful text as a personalized keepsake came to me by receiving my own wedding invitation that was hand painted, as it was always my most memorable and cherished gift I look forward to discussing your unique Art Around Design idea for your own keepsake, or to be given as a unique and thoughtful gift to your family and friends.
