I received my BFA in Illustration from Rhode Island School of Design. From an early age, I knew I wanted to be a fine arts painter, creating art to brighten private or public spaces. Over the years, I have pursued desirable galleries and shows while continuing to create custom paintings for clients. I have been honored to win many awards and earn invitations to be the featured artist at various events. I began a professional career painting detailed watercolors, primarily beach scenes. Eventually my style evolved to create bigger, bolder acrylic paintings, and I desired to explore a vast array of subjects.
