I am a current member of the Connecticut Pastel Society, Stamford Art Association, Dutchess County Arts Council and Greenwich Arts Council. My work has been seen in various exhibits throughout Fairfield County and New York. I am excited to be apart of Etsy and hope this opportunity spreads my love for art to others around the world.
