The term "pyrography" literally means "writing with fire"

Dating back to ancient Egypt and Africa, artists used tools heated in a fire to burn into wood, leather and other natural materials. Pyrography is typically associated with folk art across Europe as well as nature crafts in the United States. I have adopted this ancient and often overlooked art form to create something new and unique.

New Englander gone west

Originally from New England, I moved to New York City in 2001. After graduating from the Fashion Institute of Technology with a Bachelors in Fine Art, I remained in NYC to absorb the energy of the city and its people. This time shaped who I would become as an artist in truly unforeseen ways.
