Hi, I'm a painter living in Ditmas Park, Brooklyn. I received my BFA from VCU in Communication Arts & Design and a MA in Studio Art from NYU. My work reflects my interest in the wonders of nature, often from the vantage point of small curious animals. I work using water based acrylics on wood, paper and canvas, merging a decorative style with a colorful painterly one. My work is inspired by friendship, a sense of home and the discovery and sense of wonder observing the big beautiful world. I exhibit and sell original paintings and prints. I've been creating work on commission and painting custom murals for over a decade. I also work with designers in the film and TV business as a scenic artist, USA Local 829.

  • I have a licensed collection of art with Oopsy Daisy Fine Art for Kids. I also have a large collection of reproductions available to rent from Picture Clear Art to film/TV production. In addition, I'm working on series of designs for home decor, fabric companies, gift & stationery and art for the children's market.
