After earning a bachelor of arts in Commercial Art, I began my art career working as a textbook illustrator. After moving to Connecticut, I taught art to Junior High and High School students in a private school. Several years later, I decided to start my own business teaching private art lessons, and I also began working as a muralist. Since that time I have painted many murals in homes and businesses across Connecticut including Ruth Chafee Elementary School, Martin Kellogg Middle School, and Webb Elementary School. I was also commissioned to paint a mural in the children’s department in the Lucy Robbins Welles Library in Newington.
Growing as a painter is my great passion. I enjoy doing commissioned paintings, portraits, and other free lance projects. Painting is more than drawing with a brush. The capture of light and edges on canvas constantly motivates me. I have shown some of my work more recently at the Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts annual show, the Farmington Valley Arts Center, and at the Gallery on the Green in Canton, and the Granby Land Trust juried art show.
