"My wing has mended, my heart is healed, and now its time for me to fly."

My life is a story of my passion for art and the cultivation of my curiosity. Originally from Montreal, Canada, I pursued an acting career in film, television and commercials, traveling between my home, New York, and Los Angeles.  During this time, I became a single young mother, which ultimately led my acting career to come to a halt.  Feeling a deep urge to continue to express myself artistically, I began installing and contracting decorative arts in Northern California.  There, I eventually met my life partner, a French winemaker, and decided to join him in Northern Virginia’s Wine Country.  Amidst such bucolic surroundings, I committed to developing my paintings and sculptural pieces to the highest standard possible while honing my technique, skill, and craftsmanship.

 

I have been in the art industry for more than two decades, curating, teaching, and now producing in my home studio on a beautiful hill in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia.  Initially self-taught, in 2012,  I earned my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in painting and drawing from The Contemporary Art Department of Shepherd University.  My works are exhibited in Middleburg, Virginia and other venues in Northern Virginia and Washington DC, as well as other galleries and shows around the country.  When I am not painting, I practice yoga, meditate, and enjoy moments with my sweet Kiger horse Lola, and my little dog Sketch.  I have three sons which I adore, a musician in California, a filmmaker in transit, and an aspiring winemaker still under our roof.  I spend much time traveling to France, Canada, and California; exploring nature, enjoying wine country, sailing, riding, and always working on new art collections.
