I began my artistic career by studying fashion design in New York City. While studying fashion I began to gain a greater interest for textiles, prints, and textures and began to concentrate solely on textile surface design which allowed for more room of creative expression. Using similar design techniques from work with textiles, my art is highly stylized and vibrant in nature. The characteristic use of rich color combinations and bold graphic lines are a unique signature in my work. My breakthrough exhibit into main stream cutting edge art was at legendary Cpop Gallery in Detroit. I’ve had the honor of exhibiting with some incredible and talented artists such as Shepard Fairey, Jeff Soto, and Glenn Barr. I currently work on freelance graphic design projects and art commissions.
I first fell into photography by taking pictures of my now husband’s band. My first “unofficial” gig was for their Pat Benatar opener. In need of a last minute photographer that day, I was thrown into action. I was scared to death, they were performing in front of 14,000 people. I was in the photo pit with Rolling Stone Magazine, local rock radio stations and I had no idea what I was doing but I was hooked! I could not get enough of the fast paced energy and excitement of taking pictures at live concerts and being up front where all the action happens. Ever since I was a child I have always been around musicians and bands. With my new passion for photography, it only made sense that concert photography would be a way of life. I’m currently a concert and event photographer in the Philadelphia, NJ, NYC area.
Be yourself, everyone else is already taken.
