I grew up in Upstate NY  in a small town.  I was always drawing and painting  as a kid, but never considered art as a profession.  I went to college and earned a degree in computer science.  After 20 years in the business world, I have finally returned to my first love - art!

I began taking classes at the renowned Munson Williams Proctor School of Art and loved it.   I feel that I am always learning and have difficulty being tied to one medium.  Currently I work in acrylic, watercolor,  color pencil and dabble in digital art (my computer background comes in handy). 

Painting and drawing have always been my passion and I try to convey that passion in my work.  My teacher and mentor always said that no painting is easy.  I believe that all works of art take a little piece of myself to complete.  I am happy to share that piece with you.

Creating art can be both frustrating and very very rewarding!  One has to love it and I do!  Lately, I have tended towards realism, but who knows where this journey may take me.  I can't wait to find out.
