Growing up in Philadelphia my life was rich with art and a diverse source of cultural experiences. I discovered photography while attending the Shipley School in Bryn Mawr. I took my first college course at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. I thought I would become a photojournalist. However, plans change and as an artist I have always been very experimental.
I moved to California and received my Masters and Bachelors Degrees in Photography and also began my career as a teacher and a mixed media artist. About 10 years ago I returned to Philadelphia to focus on my career. I am an artist and I teach mixed media workshops from my studio and on location as well. I am also a commercial photographer and owner of Jewellea Photography, specializing in weddings and boudoir photography. I also own Bliss Books, a high end, hand-made album and book-making company.
