I grew up in Northern New Jersey.  I attended various colleges – graduating from S.U.N.Y New Paltz, NY with a degree in Fine Arts. After graduation, I was a freelance commercial artist.  I now devoting myself full time to painting whatever interests me. Some of my favorite subjects include coastal New England – the sea birds, marshes,  flowers, and the fishing fleet. The historic Hudson Valley – it’s mountains, lakes, architecture, and glorious vistas.  In the Southwest I focus is on the grasslands, deserts, and mountains; the wildlife and flowers found in this diverse area.

It’s the interplay of objects  in changing weather and cloud conditions that I find most inspirational – whether at the sea, mountains, or desert.
