I was academically trained at The Art Student's League in New York City and The Corcoran School of Art in Washington D.C. I also hold a degree in fine art from the Ringling School of Art and Design. I have been exhibiting since 1988 and have numerous works in private collections in New York, California, and New Mexico.

My body of work has evolved around themes of organic structure and interconnectedness. I am consciously developing my own visual language, using a restricted palette or through extravagant abstraction. I find that these ideas are best developed through a series of paintings, allowing the viewer to witness the X and Y of creativity.

To paraphrase Kandinsky, I value artists who consciously, in a entirely original form, embody the expression of their inner life.
