Artist Statement

A professional teaching artist and Lead Art Coordinator for the after-school Art Enrichment program for Norwalk Housing Authority, I collaborate with community partners to deliver a robust art program to an underserved population. While my painting program was inspired by the impressionists, I continue to exhibit my original works. I am currently in 2 Art shows, Piece by Piece at the Westport Public Library and Creativity in the Time of COVID-19 at Michigan State University as well as their online gallery.

Educational Background

BFA Illustration, School of Visual Arts, NYC

Teaching Artist Experience

Created Paint a Masterpiece a Day painting program in 2014 for participants for all ages, abilities and levels of experience, from beginner to professional artist. I taught it at summer camp for grades K-3, for veterans at Homes for the Brave in Bridgeport, at Continuing Ed in Stratford and Westport and over zoom for the Eastchester and Harrison libraries, as well as for individual clients.
