I have been interested in image creation my whole life. Over the years I have been compelled to create more than just a pretty picture...I look for ways to bring meaning and emotion to my work. Sometimes by going into the surreal, sometimes by paring down an image to its most basic elements. My art inspires questions, thinking, and second looks. Things are not always what they seem to be in my images.
My watercolors are about light, color and ideas. Surreal and real images both interest me…each has its place in expressing an idea or a feeling about a time or place, often going beyond where a photograph can go.
I studied commercial art in high school, and then went on to get a Bachelors Degree in Communication Design from Pratt Institute. I am an award-winning watercolorist, photographer, and graphic designer. My work has been and is collected by individuals all over the country.
