was born in the Bronx, New York and my family moved to the small town of Pelham, New York (its the smallest town in NY state) when I was five. Growing up so close to Manhattan and it was a regular thing to have class trips to the museums in New York City. In addition, my brother, Tom, went to art school which exposed me to possibility of creating art. I followed right behind him, including going to the same art school as he went to—the School of Visual Arts.
I discovered botanical illustration in 2006 and have been taking classes at the New York Botanical Garden since then. Not only do I love the beauty of the plants and flowers. I love the science behind them. How the plant grows, the leaf structure, the benefits to the environment it lives in, the animals who benefit from it and how it reproduces.
