She has a B.A. from the University of Pennsylvania and an MFA in Theatre Production Management from UCLA.

“As an artist, I am fascinated by the human figure: curves, muscles, faces, hands. My mixed media work combines charcoal and acrylic paint with collage to create a layered effect, allowing figures to emerge out of and submerge back into the textures around them. I enjoy the juxtaposition of different media, hard edges versus softer fields of color, torn paper against charcoal drawing against brush strokes.”
