About the Creator:
As a graduate from Purchase College with a BFA in hand, I opened my own mural business – Blooming Colors. My work can be found in homes and offices in the tri-state area. After a time, I decided that I wanted to share my love of art with children and earned a Master’s in Art Education.
I am now moving forward and working towards being a full-time artist.
Living near the beach has inspired me to convey fragments of myself in my paintings. What started as simple journal pages turned into a surge of artwork in a new and freeing style. Each painting tells a piece of my story.
I create each piece using various mixed media methods. Watercolors, color sticks, colored pencils, markers, sparkles, inking, painted chipboard, flowers, and various other materials, inspire my unique creations. There is some type of texture or movement created within each piece.
I love using layers upon layers to create a distinctive textured look in my work.
