After receiving a scholarship to attend the Columbus College of Art and Design in Ohio, I was awarded a BFA in Painting and Art Therapy in 1996. Since then I have had many commissions and solo exhibitions in the US. My MA in Education and Human Development at George Washington University was completed in 2006.
In 2007, I started an organization called Art/Engage LLC which provides art appreciation programs for adults with cognitive disabilities, especially seniors with Alzheimer's disease and dementia. My contractors and I work in group homes in DC, Maryland, and Virginia. The website is Art/Engage. Outside of work, I paint commissions upon request.
