I attribute my early love of art to my Belgian grandmother, whose impressionist painting style and encouragement resonates with me still.
After graduating from Georgetown University with a degree in marketing, I attended Pratt Institute’s School of Art and Design in New York City where I earned a Master’s Degree in Package Design. I´ve studied Arts at the University of Buenos Aires and then photography at the ICP (International Center of Photography) in New York.
I don´t work on historical memory, but rather on the memory we all carry with us, unique and formative of our individual identity. Our memory and recollections are the essence of our being, without them we can´t have a present nor a future.
I worked for several years as an art director and a freelance artist. I took up painting again in my 30’ s and have been painting ever since then! Whether it is to capture the effect of light filtering through trees or the sun reflecting off a car,I become completely absorbed in trying to render, with great detail, the image through paint. I love color and the passing effects of light and shadow,as reflected in my latest series: CARS. I feel quite nostalgic when I paint these beautiful, old cars.
My work has been displayed in a variety of venues, most recently at the Ceres Art Gallery in NYC, the Montclair Art Museum, and the Phillips Lighting Corporation in Somerset, NJ.
