My enthusiasm for creative endeavors began as a child. I scribbled, drew, crayoned, finger-painted, and had many imaginary friends and kingdoms in my home. I loved airports and airplanes, and built scale models of planes, creating runways out of cut paper. One day I even painted an airport design onto my bedroom floor. Boy, were my parents surprised!

As a student at Massachusetts College of Art, I found work painting wall murals in collaboration with graphic design and architectural firms. I also had a business constructing scale model airports. These pursuits led me to a thirty-year career in advertising as art and creative director, and finally led me back to my love of painting.

Since 2008, I've dedicated myself solely to my career as a professional artist. My paintings have been included in numerous juried exhibitions, and my work has been featured in galleries throughout New England. I hold a BFA in painting from Massachusetts College of Art, and a Certificate in Art History from the School of Fine Arts at Boston University. I can be found working in my studio at Joy Street Artist Studios in Somerville, MA.
