It was during this same year that she met her mentor, Jacob Collins, the founder of the Water Street Atelier, the Hudson River Fellowship and  The Grand Central Academy.  To develop her training still further she studied under him at the Water Street Atelier from 2002 to 2005,  where she completed her training following the nineteenth century academic  method.

The symbiotic relationship of these elements creates imagery that evokes   Romanticism
