Meet the Artist

I grew up in a very hands on and creative family… so if we wanted any artwork for our home, we created it ourselves. 

Fond memories include anxiously gathering up my drawing supplies and traveling to the area parks ready for a day of sketching and inspiration.

 

While painting, I strive to capture the essence or spirit of my subject, bringing the canvas to life and emotionally drawing the viewer into the painting. I am passionate about working with oils, but am equally excited about exploring watercolors. I use only professional grade paints and high quality canvases for my artwork.

 

In addition to studying art in college, my background includes longtime studies with successful artists, Dino Massaroni, and more recently, John A. Sargent III. Currently I am a member of the Cleveland Museum of Art, Valley Art Center and the Orange Art Center.
