Born March 16th. 1972. Raised in Providence, Rhode Island. I have been an New Englander my entire life. As a child, drawing was what I enjoyed doing more than anything. By age ten people were paying me to draw them cartoons and graffiti. With teacher recommendations, I attended Art Workshops at Rhode Island School of Design. I fell in love with the diversity and freedom to create whatever I wanted.
My work incorporates a blend of abstract designs with subject matter. I enjoy working with acrylic and oil paints on canvas. I believe art is an extraordinary platform allowing one to express emotions with aesthetically pleasing designs. My Artwork comes from my soul, not just because I’m trying to make something pretty. Although beauty is the initial attraction in any relationship, Including the relationship between a Work of Art and its admirer.
Art is therapeutic, giving one the ability to safely escape into their own imagination. It helped me through many challenging times growing up with a mom who was mentally ill. Having Art in my life kept me out of the trouble my friends were getting into. It kept me stimulated and gave me a positive obsession. As I became older, I also became more educated. Art was important to me. I liked it and I was good at it. By the time I was twenty-four, I was involved with various projects and receiving commissioned work from organizations as large as ESPN.
In recent years my focus is on Fine Art. I enjoy a paintbrush in my hand and a canvas on my easel. I appreciate the freedom of expression. I am an inventor of things that didn’t exist. I am an entertainer, creating aesthetically pleasing designs for others to enjoy. My work is stimulating. My works are an extension of myself. To me a document of me and my life.
