Born and raised in Connecticut, I started with pencil and pencil remained my only medium for many years. Working in this medium I learned to develop and define my images. Drawing is the foundation of my work to this day.
My evolution from pencil to paint began in the 1980’s. Well, color changed everything for me. Once my interest was sparked there was no turning back. Color was a new beginning.
The next big change came after many visits to the American Southwest. Subsequent travels to all of the Americas left my head bursting with vibrant images of the people, their beautiful families and the land they live and work on.I appreciate all the swirling bright colors so integrated into the landscape, fabrics, dress and folk art. My work is driven by this energy.
Hopefully you are moved by my paintings, and that they awaken in you an awareness of the magnificent life thread that connects us all.
