Greetings and thank you
for your interest in my art.
It's ironic that my professional life has been a chronicle of business marketing and management, with the emphasis on communications, messaging, and finding the perfect assembly of words to compel, while one of the most gratifying ways for me to communicate personally is through the silence of painting and drawing – a universal language that needs no words. My friends remind me that I won the distinction of “most artistically talented” in our school year book. This, I’ve come to understand, was their way of asking why I wasn’t flexing those muscles. So this site is a gallery to share. These pieces and other commissionable work are available to own. I've developed and shown my art in Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, New York, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. My work is a reflection of my fascination with life and the intimacy we share as human beings. I’m inspired by my childhood summers at the beach, my recent travels, and daily life in New York City. I have always been interested in creating language. My art allows me to create something that others may interpret or appreciate on their own, no translation necessary.
