 A Short Bio

 

Born in New Jersey, I studied painting and drawing at a young age at the Arts Student’s League in New York City.  I went on to Cooper Union where I graduated with a BFA in Painting. I have lived and painted in numerous places throughout the states, spending years in the high desert of the Rocky Mountains of Taos New Mexico, also painting in the plains of Nebraska, on the East River of Brooklyn, and finally in Boston.

 

In 2013 after almost 10 years in Boston, I received an artist residency in Tilting on Fogo Island, the most northern island off Newfoundland.  I decided that I wanted to stay on the Island for good. Living on Fogo Island permanently, I have built a small home and a studio to paint.
