Hello!  I'm and painter, photographer, writer, musician, and art educator.


I'm a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design where I majored in Illustration, and I now teach high school art. Teaching keeps me on my toes and helps me to stay creative and inspired every day. I paint landscapes in acrylic and watercolors and write and perform folk-inspired music. I have an Esty shop, Penny Cow Press, where I sell my handmade stickers and art prints to make people smile.

My art is greatly inspired by a sense of place, and perhaps that is why I have done my fair share of moving around. I've lived in Nashville, Nantucket, Maine, Rhode Island, New Jersey, and New York. I'm lucky my jobs have allowed me to share experiences in such wonderful places. I was born and raised in Bucks County, Pa and I consider Ottsville home. 

Creating music and art has been at the center of my world for as long as I can remember. I'm grateful that I have been able to maintain a love for two art forms and have been able to keep them in my daily life.
