Biography


I have been active in arts my whole life.  After studying at the school of  New York Botanical Gardens,  I worked as an Interior Landscaper for 25 years, which transformed into a love of texture and design.I like to tell a story in my abstract paintings, through words, lines and symbols. I create abstract paintings with acrylics, inks, wax, oil and various textured materials. I use collage and layering techniques to create dimensional artwork to capture the viewer's eye and viewer's emotion.The inspiration for my artwork comes from memories deep inside of me, experiences and spirituality. By channeling my energy into the creative process, my work becomes both a part of me and a reflection of life as seen through an artist's eye.As an Artist, my goal is to make you look beyond the surface and feel the emotions hiding within each painting.I was born and raised in Northern New Jersey and currently live on Seabrook Island, S.C..  I was   president of the Seabrook Island Artist Guild, for 8 years. And have won many awards, including best in show.My work is in private and corporate collections.
