<THE OUTER >
Born and raised in the Capital Region of New York.
Loved creating art for as long as I can remember.
Holds a BFA in interior design from the Sage College of Albany.
realized my calling was to paint.
Attended a semester abroad to study painting in Florence, Italy.
Never looked back.
Currently painting new works and commissions out of
my home studio.
My Style: Overall I'd say my painting style is to slightly enhance and brighten the subject's colors from their reality. I love using suggestive brush strokes and a combination of thick and thin paint.
My Subjects: Sometimes I don't know why I feel compelled to paint a certain subject, I listen and am sensitive to my inner voice, because maybe I'm painting it for you. Maybe it was meant for YOU to have it. When you see a piece of art and it's all too perfectly a sign of significance to you, it was painted for you. If not to purchase, to see. I believe that. I hope a painting of mine can bring you joy. Joy and depth of life, is what I wish to spread through my Art.
The Moment: There is that moment, with every painting, where I am fully connected to what I am painting. Quite literally, my soul swirls through the paint, and that's when the magic happens and the painting gets it's life.
