I graduated from Rhode Island School
of Design with a BFA in graphic design.
My experience from working as a graphic designer has allowed me to see the empty canvas the way I view a new brochure to design. Composition, design elements, color and overall look are important in any medium I use.

My mixed-media paintings consist of acrylics, textured papers, textured gel mediums, oils and oil pastels. Brush strokes and textures are very important in my work.

My work has often been linked to the Fauvist Movement of Matisse, Derain and Vlaminck, where the subject matters they painted were turned into pure color, forceful brushstrokes and deep emotions. They rejected traditional renderings of three-dimensional space and instead, chose to create paintings where space was defined by movement of color and composition.
