My favorite things in life are cooking, crafting, designing, cinemas, history, tacos, nature, and my imagination. I’m always searching for excuses to create, and it’s only a bonus when I get paid for doing what I love. My appreciation for art started when I was a kid in Woodstock, NY at my grandma’s little house. She was a retired nurse that always had a passion for art, especially painting and pastels. She taught art classes to her fellow senior citizens. She would set me up a still-life scene and give me whatever media with which she felt like teaching. Those summers were the best, and I’d have to guess that they were the seed that started my love and curiosity of art and design.
