I was born and raised in central Vermont, which has shaped my free spirit, inquisitive nature, and artistic identity. My musical pursuits, ranging from serious studies of piano, xylophone, timpani, singing, and the harp have also greatly influenced my artistic style and is evident in the visual language I use on canvas. I earned my bachelors at Skidmore College as a Studio Art major, and my MFA from SUNY Albany.
“There’s a kind of luck that’s not much more than being in the right place at the right time, a kind of inspiration that’s not much more than doing the right thing in the right way, and both only really happen to you when you empty your heart of ambition, purpose, and plan; when you give yourself, completely, to the golden, fate-filled moment” – Gregory David Roberts, Shantaram
