My interest in art was sparked over 40 years ago when I was a theater production major in college and an aspiring scene painter. But life had other plans for me and more than 25 years passed before my passion was reignited. I worked first with pencil, then charcoal and pastels, and finally oils, while also trying my hand at portraits, figures, still life and landscapes.

I find that what inspires me the most is not so much the subject, as it is the drama that lies within. Whether it is a compelling story, and intriguing expression, or a beautiful play of light and shadow, I am always looking for that emotional response. My works have won numerous awards and have been exhibited throughout New York City and North Jersey. Many are in private collections.

For the past few years I have spent as much time as possible immersing myself in classes and workshops, visiting galleries and museums, learning and absorbing as much as I can in an effort to improve my craft. I am beginning to understand that the process is just as important as the result. It truly is all about the journey!
