ABOUT

"I paint flowers so they will not die."- Frida Kahlo

As a child, my favorite day was when my mother bought me a new box of Crayola Crayons,

the 64 count box. Nothing was better than opening that box and seeing all the colors at my fingertips. That's where I started creating pictures. I love the painting process, from sketching my subject to determining values, mixing colors, and everything in between. For me, it's like working on a puzzle, trying to figure out the best way to create the illusion of the 3-dimensional on the 2-dimensional canvas.

I am inspired to paint what I see around me. Sometimes, it's the colors in the clouds of a

sunset; sometimes, it's the way a palm tree moves in the wind or the way the light plays

across the petals of a flower; sometimes, it's the eyes of a Husky. It can be the many shades of white on a shell I found walking a beach or the curves, creases, and turns of a person's face.

I have been painting or making art for as long as I could hold a crayon. I studied Fine Art at

Boston University and graduated with a BFA in Graphic Design from The College of New

Jersey. After working for several years in Packaging Design, I picked up my paintbrush

again and have yet to look back.

I've exhibited with the Freehold Art Society and the Guild of Creative Art.

 

I have a studio and works on display at Art Edge Gallery & Studio in Naples, Florida.
