I was always artistic.  After high school I worked for a fashion designer

as a dyer, learning how to mix pigments and hand-dye fabrics.

I studied studio art for a year at Tyler School of Art in Philly.  From there

I went on to get a degree in art history and classical studies at the

University of Rhode Island.  While there I had an opportunity for an

internship in the conservation department at the RISD Museum of Art

in Providence.  I was hired by two private conservators to help them

meet deadlines on projects and became interested in pursuing

conservation as a career.

I moved to New Orleans upon graduation and immediately started doing restoration work at the

New Orleans Conservation Guild.  There I learned gilding and frame restoration and was exposed

to the incredible wealth of art in that city.  I eventually transitioned into the painting department

and learned painting conservation.  I was displaced by Hurricane Katrina and came back to my

home state of Pennsylvania to live and work in Philly for the next four years.

In Philly, I worked at Belmont Hills Conservation Studio, a consortium of conservators sharing space and projects.  As a subcontractor

I worked on projects for each of the conservators there in the fields of painting, paper, furniture, and objects conservation.

 

I moved to Nashville in 2010 and currently work on paintings, gilded frames and various painted and gilded objects.  My studio is located in Pegram.
