I grew up in a small town in Western New York. Throughout childhood painting and drawing was my life, so when it came time for college, art as a major seemed like the natural progression. I graduated from Edinboro Univeristy of Pennsylvania with a Bachelor in Fine Arts. While in college I met my now husband James and together we moved to Virginia. While in Virginia we have made a family, having 2 beautiful children together. During the day I am employed as a Computer Technician at Pearson Education, but my passion for art will always be what truly makes me happy. I am excited to be a part of the Paint Nite Team where I can share my love for art with you!
