Pure Joy Arts

Biography

I was born and raised in Trenton, NJ, but spent every possible moment on the Jersey Shore. From Cape May to Sandy Hook, the lighthouses, the miles of white sand and the untouched dunes of Island Beach State Park have inspired many of my efforts. I inherited my ambition and my talent from my mom and dad, John and Mary Virok, who, in my opinion, were the most talented and creative people this world has ever seen. They taught me not to be afraid to express my feelings through my art and to appreciate that rare gift we were given.

I graduated from Hamilton High – West and attended Mercer College. I am currently a full-time student at Polk State College, pursuing a degree in Fine Arts. I have participated in several art shows, receiving recognition for my accomplishments.
