Born and raised in Philadelphia, my early artwork was influenced by the city surroundings and my love of music. And then I saw my first Rembrandt in a magazine and my direction was forever changed. His work was so inspiring and I instantly knew my artistic direction would include oil painting and copperplate etching. Over the years I’ve explored a variety of mediums, but ultimately I gravitated to these two very different art forms to express my visions, largely because they are so different.

Although my choice of subject matter is varied, mood, atmosphere & a sense of solitude seem to be constants in my art, with the hope & intent of evoking an emotional response from the viewer.


A native of Philadelphia, my art career began in the advertising field & transitioned into a career as a full-time fine artist in 1988. My work has been exhibited in numerous galleries throughout the United States & abroad and has garnered many awards of recognition, & is included in many private & corporate collections. My work has been the subject of many art publications, newspaper articles, & has been featured on PBS & Fox News as a feature story about Philadelphia artists. Through my art I am inspired to explore aspects of our surroundings that are often seen but not truly savored, with a goal of transporting the viewer to a place of beauty & serenity.
