About

Historical fashion, animals, cake, and the food chain...a totally logical combination of artistic source material.

I received my undergraduate degree in Theatrical Design from Tufts University. After pursuing an MFA in Costume Design at Carnegie Mellon University I elected to switch gears entirely towards a focus on public service. I received a JD from Boston College Law School and became a Massachusetts Assistant District Attorney specializing in domestic violence cases.

After the death of both my mother and stepfather within the same year forced me to confront how brief life can be and reevaluate how I wanted to spend mine I once again made a drastic change in my life and returned to art. I only half-jokingly describe this as my tragic artist superhero origin story as shorthand for explaining the immensity of the decision. This time the change was permanent and I have been a professional watercolor artist for the past decade selling paintings all over the world through the magical connectivity of the internet.

My work is inspired by my varied background, my obsession with historical fashion and my experience with the power of clothes to transform the wearer into whomever she wants to be. That lesson comes from my time in theatrical design…and the fact that I am petite and non-threatening but when I walked into court in a suit people magically listened to me. My art is also filled with bright colors, happy creatures, and tasty things to eat. Despite my deep appreciation for artwork that reflects the darkness of the human spirit if I tried to paint a monster it would just come out wearing a cute hat.
