As an artist, my background in fine arts includes a BFA from Syracuse University with majors in painting, fashion illustration and design. I have studied further in the arts with Valdi Maris, DuCret School of Art, Lucy Moses School of Art, New York University and The National Academy of Fine Arts. My paintings have sold in several home furnishings stores in New York City and many local stores in New Jersey as well as private sales. I have also done free lance illustrations for "All My Children" on ABC Television, in addition to selling two paintings to a publishing company for use as holiday greeting cards.
I have exhibited my work at Lavon Art Gallery and The Library on East Brunswick The Rehabilitation Hospital of Morristown, NJ, and Ward Nasse Gallery in NYC.
My paintings are composed of strong and vibrant colors, combined with soft moving and free flowing washes combined with over-lays of blended colors. The subject matter is composed primarily of flowers, plant life, shapes and forms in oil and acrylic medium.
