I grew up in a small beach town in New Jersey with beautiful landscapes, which inspired my drawing at a young age. My parents saw my enthusiasm to paint so they enrolled me in private art lessons at the young age of 8. I continued my love for art through my high school years.
As an undergraduate at Moore College of Art in Philadelphia, I majored in illustration and concentrated in advertising. Illustration filled my love for art, while advertising filled my ability to have a successful career. My dream was to be pro- ductive and financially successful as an artist. After college I worked as a professional advertiser in two different agencies. I loved the creativity of logo designs, packaging, magazine ads, and much more that comes with advertising. I embraced the creativity but still desired to be a painter. As the years passed I worked on building my portfolio as an artist.
In 1988 I moved to Scottsdale, Arizona and I eventually started my own art business. I enjoy the freedom and crea- tivity of being a full-time artists. I now live in California with my family, and find inspiration everywhere I look.
"No matter what the technique will be, drawing, painting, mixed medium, murals, faux finishes, art will always be in my heart. The love will transfer to the canvas where I can share my creativity with everyone."
