I work on an intuitive level. I don not think about what I will be putting on the canvas. I just quiet my mind and listen to my inner voice. I choose the colors that come to me and just create.

Growing up in Central New York and living in the Hudson Valley for twelve years has led me on my quest for artistic fullfillment. At a young age, I was driven to the paint brush and the feeling of putting paint on canvas was exhilerating. My passion was put on hold when I made the choice to study at Syracuse University at Utica College in Utica NewYork. Upon my graduation in 1989, I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Therapeutic Recreation with a concentration in Psychology. While taking only a few studio art classes, modern architecture, and art history classes while studying in college, I continued to self-educating in Fine Arts. I tried to constructively implement into my motifs according to the work of Jackson Pollock, Maurice Esteve, and Paul Klee thus creating a sort of cubism, and abstract expressionism compositions. Strictly creating abstract compositions using oils and acrylic paints is now my main focus. Produced on canvas my work displays a non-objective composition utilizing shapes, colors, lines and other elements. When looking at my pieces, they reveal a state of mind and another way to view the world bringing together life's experiences in a non- judgmental expression.
