Biography


Art has always been a part of me. In my early years I studied drawing, painting, and photography. Adult life got in the way when the reality of supporting myself set in and again 24 years ago, when I started the estate liquidation business, Auctions Neapolitan | Dovetails LLC, in Naples, FL. Fortunately, I've been able to be surrounded by beautiful items and art because of this business, but it isn't the same as creating. 
 
Throughout the years, I have enjoyed learning different techniques, finishes, media, and styles but never had enough time for formal classes and never considered selling my works. One creative outlet I have had that coupled well with the business is exploring, creating, and refining painted furniture finishes and teaching that craft to others.
 
Thanks to our wonderful team, I now have a lot more free time to be in my "happy place' as they call it. Enter my dear friend and mentor, Peter Garon. ​ Peter is a very successful fine art artist and has owned and operated galleries in Washington, Virginia, and Naples. He recently moved and opened his new gallery in Sarasota, Florida. By my good luck, we became neighbors when Peter lived in Naples. One day he saw me painting and subsequently pushed me to step out of my comfort zone, to be public, and to grow with my art. His help has been invaluable, his critiques honest, and I would never have done this without his support and encouragement. Peter helped me on to another part of life's incredible journey, and I can't thank him enough.
