I grew up in Columbus, Ohio, itching to see the world. After college, I spent my twenties traveling the globe and living and working in Beirut, Lebanon. My education and experiences eventually earned me a job in Washington and a life defined by D.C. traffic and deadlines.
I had to ask, is this all there is?
That’s when I decided to make the leap from cubicle servitude to visual art. I find I cannot stick to one medium. As much as I love painting on canvas, I love to experiment with mixed media, printmaking, and textile art. I consider myself fortunate that I can also bring my creativity to my job at the local library where I teach art classes and run a small gallery showing artists from the community.
My Goals for this Blog
Most of all, this is a chronicle of my artistic journey. I discuss the inspiration behind my work and my creative process. However, I also want to share what I’ve learned on my journey in hopes of inspiring other like-minded folks. People who, like me, have left behind a secure but unsatisfying career to create a more meaningful, creative life. I love to travel almost as much as I love art, so you will also find regular travel essays and write-ups of international art historic sites and exhibits.
