About the Artist


Artist Statement

I am a contemporary artist who develops works inspired by the beauty in color and figurative expressions. My true objective is to communicate visually through emphasis on texture and form. My works of art would be defined as contemporary and prolific

My approach to making a work art is very personal and often the incorporation of my own experiences are reflected in the subject matter. I am often the muse in the figurative work and the color pallet selected for my non-objective work is specifically designed with symbolism and unspoken meaning.

My vision has always been a deteriorating hurdle throughout my life. Since the time of childhood, I would have difficulty in seeing detail and clarity. I worked this situation to my advantage. I often draw without my glasses or corrective lenses to create an interpretation or impression of what I see rather than replicating it.

As a resident of South Florida for over 20 years, the environment, culture and community is important and inspiring. I also am passionate about my experience of growing up in New England. I like to fuse elements of both aspects into my portfolio.
