After completing BFA degree in Painting at the Corcoran College of Art in 1993, I worked for five years as a studio artist. These paintings, completed between 1992 and 1997, are primarily informed by my career as a ballet dancer, as well as from an artistic pilgrimage I took to Rome in 1992 to experience the newly restored Sistine Chapel and divinely inspired genius of Michaelangelo.
In Italy I fell in love with layered surfaces and Renaissance colors. Upon my return to the States I continued painting dancers, figures and explored composition in greater detail.
