I cannot remember a time in my life that I was not either playing music or creating art. They are my two DNA strands. Although I majored in music, Bachelor of Music in ‘cello performance from Ohio Wesleyan University (Slocum Prize in Music), Master of Arts in ‘Cello Pedagogy from The Ohio State University and doctoral candidate at Arizona State University, I have always kept my art present and combined the two when appropriate. I still perform and teach ‘cello, but painting is now the largest part of my creative life.  I keep my art current by being very curious about trying new mediums and methods! My work hangs in many private collections around the world, and is currently featured at THE TURQUOISE DOOR GALLERY in Telluride, Colorado.
