I was born in West Palm Beach FL and moved to New York where I discovered my passion for art. I attended the High School of Art & Design where I majored in illustration. This fall I will be studying at Connecticut College. I plan to major in Education and Studio art and Minor in Arabic. Art is my passion, and painting especially allows me to create a point of view in a different type of medium. Simply by just looking at contrast you can tell the theme or looking at the brush strokes you can tell the mood. I would like to thank Paul Chinelli and James Harrington for their inspiration.
