While living in NYC I attended the Fashion Institute of Technology majoring in fashion design and business management. After spending nearly 20 years in the fashion industry it was time to seek a new chapter in my life. I made a move to the Hudson Valley and started to study visual arts at the Woodstock School of Art.
My paintings are based in the classics with a modern attitude making my oils photographic and vivid. Each painting shows masterful use of light and shadows as my personal expression to create a simple but strong composition. My photographs come from my passion and love for the animals in my life.
The past of every form streams into us, our instincts now run back in all directions, we ourselves are a kind of chaos.
