I am a graduate of Rutgers University, where I received my B.A. in fine art/graphic design. I worked as a graphic artist for a number of years, but have recently began to focus on my art full time. I paint as well as make art jewelry. I was taught jewelry making by my former employer, Trifon Nomidi s, who has been a local jeweler in Newark, New Jersey for over 30 years. I am a native to New Jersey, but recently bought a home in Pennsylvania in order to have my own studio and gallery space. I have had work in several galleries and festivals in New Jersey, New York, and North Carolina. You can see more of my work on my website.
