Always drawn to art and design, I have worked in many careers that used color and design in some context… interior design, drapery, fashion design… and more recently have used the same eye for design in creating web design and photoshop manipulation.
Previously, I have found art to be an outlet for mental & emotional well-being and continue to explore it as a therapeutic form of communication with self by excavating the layers of my own history.
