I am an American Artist, Illustrator, & Surface Designer focusing on work that empowers individual expression, particularly for the marginalized. I am passionate about celebrating identity through the decoration of ourselves and our personal surroundings. (Read more in my full Artist Statement)

My family roots are Sicilian, Central Italian, Hungarian, and English. In the early 1900’s, most of my ancestors began emigrating to New York. From there, they spread into Brooklyn and eventually all over New Jersey. My parents moved to the San Francisco Bay Area in 1982, had my brother and I, and then shortly moved back to Central New Jersey to raise us along with my youngest sister. In 2012, I relocated back to San Francisco and received a BFA in Illustration from California College of the Arts.

Currently, I exhibit original artwork in galleries, design textiles for Home Furnishing & Apparel brands, create illustrations for products and packaging, and accept private commissions.

Aside from making things, I love to dance, connect with people, and spend time in nature with my husband and our fluffy dog.
