I am a little-bit-impressionist / little-bit-realist artist, painting in oil and drawing in charcoal & graphite. I work in a sunny little home studio in Natick, Massachusetts where I live with my husband, Mike, and our toddler son, Grey.
My paintings and drawings are inspired by all things romantic, feminine, and old world. I'm a big fan of John Singer Sargent's work (swooooon!), organic, gestural lines, and thick, luscious brushstrokes.

I think environment is EVERYTHING.
I spent enough time in office jobs early on in my career to know that a windowless room with fluorescent lighting makes the soul wilt, and a beautiful, sunlit space lets you thrive! Designing and shaping your space makes your world more inspiring and creates breathing room for your dreams to grow and flourish.
I love that my art is helping you beautify your lovely home or workspace. I hope you choose a piece that truly speaks to you, so that when you gaze around your surroundings looking for inspiration, you are reminded of your own beauty and strength.
A bit of my history... I grew up in the rambling, magnificent countryside of the Berkshires where I spent a lot of time daydreaming about things like living in a Jane Austen novel, or all the ball gowns I would surely get to wear as a grownup (yes, reality was a major disappointment!).
I went on to get my Bachelor of Fine Arts at Cornell University, where I met my husband, and we now live in a cozy little house in Natick, Massachusetts with our toddler son.
I recently returned to my first love, painting, after spending the last few years with beautiful brands like Anthropologie, where I created window displays, and Style Me Pretty, where I styled editorial shoots for wedding and lifestyle content. Take a peek at my styling portfolio here.
