About

When I was in kindergarten I remember picking up a rock in Staten Island New York and being amazed at how much this hunk of minerals resembled a woman's face. I was stunned. Shocked. Flabbergasted. No piece of earth could possibly look like that by accident. I felt that it was important and that perhaps a nice lady's spirit was stuck inside. I went indoors, up to my room and put the rock in a box with other important things like the plastic heart from my friend Samantha next door, "pretty" shells from the Jersey Shore and some bubble gum.

As for now, I live in a small town in Pennsylvania with my main squeeze, Jason. We have a cat named Burgers. Jason does voices for her. I never met a funnier cat. He's a musician and I like to sing with him. We're both teachers.. or trying to be. I love to create. I'm trying to focus on paintings and jewelry. I should probably focus even more. I'm interested in a lot of ideas, looks and styles so I tend to want to do everything.

I really hope you enjoy my art.
