On a Personal Note
I was born in Suffolk County, New York and started receiving scholarships to art camps and classes at a young age. I began painting commissioned work in grade school. After high school, I attended Bismarck (ND) State College and Kutztown (PA) University earning degrees in Graphic Design and Fine Arts. Since college, I’ve worked in many arts related fields such as a jewelry setting and finishing, at an art gallery, as an art instructor, and as a sign maker to name a few.
I’m currently expanding Promiseland to include more portrait commissions, public school artist in residencies, teaching private art lessons, and a line of one of a kind upcycled jewelry.
