About Me

I am a fine art painter, a yoga instructor, and a massage therapist. Hawaii has been my home since 2016.

When it comes to art making, I love working in acrylic paint for its assertiveness, watercolor for its fluidity, and mixed-media for surprises and texture.

Kauai has been an inspiration to use bold colors, and connect to nature in the humblest ways.

Throughout my art career, I have lived and worked in different cities including San Francisco, CA, Larchmont, NY, and Pittsburgh, PA.  

Through the lens of my personal experiences, I seek to share images that are thought provoking and stimulating to the viewers own creative side.
