About Me

Artist’s Statement

Although I always knew that I wanted to be an artist when I grew up, I took a circuitous way to finding myself as a painter after years of doing other things other than what I love: art & nature. Instead I studied Russian language and literature and ended up doing nothing related to my education and became a user experience designer. I now freelance and paint whenever I can. I came back to painting after taking studio classes at the Museum School at the MFA and various workshops with area artists such as Ellen Rolli, Ron Krouk, Karen O’Neill, Al Gury, Julie Beck, Zhanna Cantor, and Martha Wakefield. I gravitate towards nature- especially birds and the landscape. I tend to paint small in an “alla prima” or direct style where I react to the scene at hand and attempt to start and finish a painting in one session. My process includes photographing subjects, making collages of the images and then transforming them into paintings.
