Art has always been my passion. I attended Kendall College then Syracuse University, where I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Illustration. I then headed west to Sacramento,CA, where I established myself as a freelance illustrator, working with advertising agencies and publications. After ten years of illustrating I began to focus inward on my personal artistic endeavors. My images became stronger and I began to give them perspective and dimension, bringing them to life. Functionality also became an intriguing element, so I began creating functional art such as chairs, tables, screen doors, and room dividers. I further became interested in public art, and was commissioned by the city of Sacramento. For this commission, I created a 13'tall steel flower that functions as a park bench in Robla Park, CA. I am continuing my artistic endeavors in Phoenix Arizona.
