Training

I graduated from Moravian College in 2001 with a BA in Graphic Design and Advertising. During college, I had a concentration in studio art and completed various courses including drawing I, II, III, and IV, painting I & II, 2D design, Photoshop, and many more.

Since that time, I have completed over 20 classes at Fleisher Art Memorial in Philadelphia, PA. I have studied under teachers such as Karen Baumeister, Marie Elcin, David Berger, Fran Gallun, Nancy Sophy, James Dupree, Joni Woods, and many more!
