I’m a passionate visual artist, art consultant, curator, writer, administrator and marketer, committed to serving diverse populations with welcoming and engaging art dialogs and experiences. I’m a strategic thinker, skilled at building relationships and reviewing exhibitions to inspire interest and imagination. It a joy to be of service in the arts to educate and motivate the expansion of art appreciation, growth and acquisition. I love sparking excitement in others through access to new art experiences, encouraging creative expression, imagination, inclusion and connection by creating and exhibiting work that inspires and uplifts the viewer. I’m an advocate for artists, providing administrative support and resources through collaboration to expand their vision and audience. My great joy is to raise awareness, drive excellence and serve in an art-filled environment that empowers diverse populations to learn, grow and reach their highest creative aspirations.
