Since 1997, I have been painting with oil colors because their rich colors and unlimited textures are a source of boundless delight and challenge. I have been encouraged to become an artist since a very young age, and enjoy other mediums such as charcoal, acrylic and pastel.
My style fluctuates between my passion for classical realism and an other-worldly, dreamlike surrealism. I strive to represent both real and imaginary places, creatures and objects.
Early in my career, I received merits such as the Walpole High School Art Award, The Boston Globe Scholastic Art Awards Silver Key, and the Anna Maria College Statewide High School Art Exhibition First Place Ribbon.
I dedicated myself to painting and graphic design at MassArt and the American Intercontinental University. During this time I earned a place on the Dean’s List as well as received grades of High Honors. I have been exhibiting since 1995, been sought after for commissions since 2003, and have collectors in MA, NH, RI, VA and NC.
