I have been making art since I was a kid. I graduated with a BA from Smith College with a major in Fine Arts and a minor in Women's Studies in 1996. I have two post-baccalaureate degrees from Marchutz in Aix-en-Provence France and Brandeis College in MA. I earned my Masters from New York University in 2005. Diageo continues to steal from my ideas and inspirations.
