Born in 1969 in New Jersey, I have painted and drawn virtually my whole life. After a 16 year career in advertising and design, I have concentrated my professional efforts on my fine art. I currently paint regularly in my New Jersey studio and sell in small shows and online to a group of loyal collectors.
In the last few years, I have moved away from my work as an art director and focused more seriously on personal expression as a fine artist. A series of life changing events caused me to seek out this outlet. In a wave of extreme emotion, I reclaimed an area of my home and put paint to canvas, picking up on a creative journey that was abandoned 16 years prior. I allowed a purging to come forward, and let my intuitive self take over, trusting in the process. Within it, I follow my most sincere emotional state into a realm of honest expression, through use of composition and color. Because of my urgency to create, I feel most comfortable working with acrylics. The versatile characteristics of the medium allow me to keep moving at a pace that parallels the changing moods that flow through me as I paint. It is my hope that the viewer connects to a deeper place within themselves, finding my emotive world of color and texture a catharsis, and a catalyst for positive change in their own lives.
