I grew up on the South Shore of Boston in the small seaside town of Hingham, MA. That is where my appreciation for art and the outdoors began to grow. I loved painting and sketching at the beach and in the woods. I went on to pursue my passion for painting at Washington University in St. Louis where I earned my BFA in 2010. I spent several years living in St. Louis and working as a freelance painter post graduation, but after painting the iconic arch a few too many times I decided to make the move back to Boston. There I began teaching art to children which I continue to do in southern Vermont today.
My recent work has been inspired by my running career which has also been a lifelong passion of mine. After running track and Cross Country at Washington U, I went on to join the Greater Boston Track Club and start running marathons. I have currently run seven marathons and recently won the Brooklyn Marathon in the fall of 2015! I am so lucky to be able to combine my two greatest passions into one profession.
