My favorite thing about Global Trade

is the opportunity to meet incredibly creative people.

I am a local South Florida, artist; trained at Rochester Institute of Technology in upstate New York, who arrived in Florida in 1996 to find my soul’s home! The bulk of my career has been focused in marketing and design; however my passion lies in my art. I delight in acrylic painting, photography and mixed medium.

My training is in industrial, packaging and graphic design. However, the true heart and soul of my RIT experience was engaging in classes taught by the masters at the School of American Craftsmen. The observation, support and advice offered, in part by the grad students from around the world, have clearly influenced my design sense and understanding of mixed medium. I am continually inspired by the world’s craftsmen. YouTube videos of ancient process, tools and techniques are a never ending source for an unexpected twist to adapt into my next work.


I am a big fan of ETSY and Pinterest platforms because they provide the infrastructure and business tools to reach a worldwide market place, connect me with products and services that are not available in my area and support other entrepreneurial artists and makers like me.

For all of you that know the artist in me, you will be able to see my work from the

Gallery tab.  The new studio is under construction and “Oh, you know I have a grand plan!”. John and I are currently working on the multi-purpose training table/work space to accommodate up to six work spaces. We are planning to have the first phase of the studio completed in time for spring.
