I am a painter, of people, places, and things. I prefer to paint directly from life. It is exciting to create the form of an object, the atmosphere of a place, or the essence of a person, by manipulating oil paint on the end of a 13-inch brush. 

My work is contemporary realism. I love contrast and color. Painting for me is finding the solution. The whole process is fun, from squeezing tubes of paint onto the palette to washing brushes in hot soapy water.

I was born and raised in New Rochelle, NY. My father was an artist and advertising executive who had a strong influence on me, and my art. I excelled in art during high school. Consequently, I went on to study at several art schools in Philadelphia and New York.

There was a time in my life when I felt the burden and stress from trying to do everything. We put impossible demands on ourselves and then feel worthless when we fail to get it all done. I wish I knew then, what I know now. We are all worthy. You simply don't have to do it all.  

My journey has been to simplify the complicated and be happy by leaving some things undone.
