I am a late bloomer. I attended Tyler School of Art for painting in the 90’s and then I put down the brush for over 20 years.
I am a competitive paddler and so my time has been spent on the water. It is my passion and inspiration. In 2018 I needed surgery and it took me away from the water and left me with time. I picked up the brush again, attended classes at Fleisher Art Memorial and began painting after so many years.
My paintings are Inspired by my time on the water, the Schuylkill River and so many memories. I own an outrigger canoe and many of my paintings are the view from my boat. There is a magical feeling when you are alone on the water, the sun is rising, and the light hits the Philly skyline.
Now I have two passions, I am back on the water, and I am painting what I love. My hope is that viewing my work takes you to that special place, dreamlike and magical.
