As an Abstract and Mixed-Media Artist, I've been creating art since I was in my 20's. I enjoy taking classes in art at various art centers in NJ, including Center for Contemporary Art in Bedminster, Visual Arts Center in Summit, Arts Council of Princeton, Artworks in Trenton, and many retreats. Although, I mostly do abstract, I more recently have been challenging myself to create more representational pieces through online courses and books. It's important that an artist continually learns new techniques and ways of expression. Also, I have been exhibiting my work since 2010 at many different venues. Exhibiting has given me the opportunity to expose my artwork and receive awards.
