Wetlands #13
Acrylic on Canvas




Born in California.......Last year of high school awarded a summer school scholarship to "Art Center" in Los Angeles.  Attended "Santa Barbara College" as an art major, then on to UCLA and majored in art and costume design. After graduating opened a custom beachwear shop in Santa Monica, Ca.  After several years closed my shop and traveled around the world for a year.

Returning to the USA attended "Los Angeles Trade Technical School" studying draping and pattern making. Entered the fashion industry in  os Angeles, then on to San Francisco and finally New York City.  Designed for several major fashion houses before opening "Groot and Mislove" a textile print design studio designing collections for the fashion market.

Through the years of working with color, texture, ideas, designs my senses were always challenged, inspired and delighted by the ever ongoing new ways to play with all of these elements.  I came to the point where I needed to explore all of this in a much deeper way. It was at this time I went back to further pursue my studies in fine art.  I began working with the painters Victor Candell and Leo Manso in NYC.  I attended the "Provincetown Workshop" two months, each of two summers working with VC and LM and then continued studies with them in NYC .......

I currently live in NYC and East Hampton, painting full time ......
