Visual Art – Phoenix, AZ

Born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona. As a child I was surrounded by art; my father and my grandmother were both artists and taught me the basic foundations of art. I\'ve drawn and painted since I was a very young child. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Arizona State University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art History. During my studies I focused on classical antiquity, as well as, the Italian and Northern Renaissance and gained greater appreciation for the Old Masters. While traveling abroad to Europe, I was influenced by the various styles and museum works in Italy, France, Spain and the Netherlands. After graduating from college, I worked as a Director at a local art gallery in the Scottsdale Arts District, where I worked closely with many international artists. I eventually transitioned to the corporate world and furthered my education with a Masters Degree in Education. I now spend most of my time with family and friends and dedicate much of my spare time to exploring the world of art. ...more
