My creative journey started in my youth as I learned the power of art and its great ability in telling stories. My heart and soul are revealed through my celebration of paintings and mixed-media creations.
You can tell when someone has given their heart and soul to something they love. My creative studies have taken me from Art Center College where I studied illustration; Hawaii to study painting with Eva and Americo Makk; to Florence, Italy where I was a student of Studio Art Centers International (SACI); with Joseph Shepherd and Madam Simi, also in Italy; and to California where I studied with Theodore Lukitz. I have since created over 200 murals and numerous original paintings. Collectors continue to enjoy and add my previous and current artworks to their collections.
Art has centered me. When I am in the act of creation it makes me feel like I am in the most perfect place in the world. A place where head, heart, soul and hand connect in an elegant and expressive experience of living in the moment.
