As a former teacher in Brooklyn, I used the space I had with my students to create works of art. The fearlessness of a child’s imagination never fails to inspire. Brooklyn itself is bursting with art at every corner. Every person I met in New York had their own creative outlet, and I started to see artists all around me. Leaving Brooklyn was one of the hardest decisions to make—knowing that I would be leaving a utopia of bright culture, diverse people, delicious food, breathtaking art, and a way of life that simply cannot be found anywhere else in the world.

After relocating to Maryland with my husband and choosing to pursue my art full time, I started experiencing many of the transitional challenges that come with leaving a BIG CITY and moving to the suburbs. Now that life has slowed down a bit, I am starting to uncover things within me that were always beneath the surface. I am using my art as a vehicle to express those feelings and thoughts, which can be difficult to verbalize.

My art explores emotional uncertainty within my personal life and in our society. I create evocative works that take abstract form. 

Now that art has become such a huge part of my life, I am looking to meet and connect with other artists. I know that this is the only way that I will grow in my practice and make art that is meaningful.
