I was born and raised in Florida, and picked up my first paint brush too early to remember. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts at the School of Visual Arts in New York City, studying on a full tuition scholarship under renowned artists including Jane Rosen, Don Eddy, Jan Groth and Jack Youngerman.
My life has been lived under the aegis of exploration and discovery. I have traveled the globe extensively and now split my time between homes in Colorado and northern Italy. I have a passion for beauty and natural spaces, in particular the open sky and bodies of water. Dawn and dusk are my most inspirational moments of the day.
My work is inspired by majestic landscapes and the forces of nature, and is expressed through a spontaneous dialogue with the world around me. My paintings are the result of meditation, intuition, and sometimes a simple whim. My technique is immediate and instinctive, constructing paintings in layers, often spontaneously covering underpaintings. My canvases convey an inclination towards light and space and expressive color, and change in appearance and mood depending on the time of day, the weather, and the season. My work is beckoning, instantaneous, and sensual. My perspective is tactile and sensorial. My paintings are sometimes dreamlike and sometimes reminiscent of the natural world. The word most used by visitors to my exhibitions to describe my work is poetic.
I am forever humbled and grateful, and long for nothing more than to leave a mark of beauty in this world.
My paintings have been exhibited in Italy, New York City, New Mexico, Colorado, and Greece, and are part of private collections in the United States and Italy.
I am so grateful that you are here.
