After 9 years overseas in three different countries, I returned to Virginia with my family in 2014. I have been a member of Vienna Arts Society since my return to Vienna. My overseas experiences are an inspiration for my artwork.

Creating is soothing to me and I enjoy painting, graphic design, photography, and collage which is a challenge for me, but it is good to be challenged it pushes you to be more creative.

The highlight of my life was studying fine arts in Florence, Italy, and exhibiting with professional artists in Florence, Italy; Istanbul, Turkey; and La Paz, Bolivia. I have the honor of a permanent photo exhibit in the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City.

Create whenever you can and never stop learning.
