Creating An Experience

 

   Specializing in color, I am a multi-media artist living in the Prospect Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York. I love to demystify color by creating and teaching inventive ways on how to make decorative patterned paper for video, book art, sculpture, and installation.

  

   Awarded a scholarship to Central St Martins, in London, England I obtained a BFA degree in Textile Design and Fashion. When I returned to the states I developed packaging, graphics for point-of-purchase displays, original textiles and surface designs primarily for the cosmetic industry. Working with cosmetic buyers from the department stores Barneys New York, Neiman Marcus, Henri Bendels, and Bergdorf Goodman I designed and produced travel and cosmetic bags sold nationally and internationally. Many of the principles in printmaking are similar to fabric and surface design making an easy and natural transition for me into fine art printmaking in 2009. 

   My work has been exhibited throughout the United States and Internationally. I recently completed a Fellowship Residency at La Scuola Internazionale di Grafica Venezia, Italy sponsored in part by La Scuola, The Boston Printmakers and Speedball Art Products.
