I was born and raised in Lawrenceville, NJ. Around the age of five, I stumbled upon my aunts painting studio during a family gathering at my grandparents house. Her oil palette was sitting in the window with sunlight going across it. I stuck a finger into this yellow stuff & began rubbing it between my fingers. The reults were electrifying. I had to know what this “stuff” was! Turns out what I had put my fingers in was Cadmium Yellow Oil paint. And so began my path as an artist. Whether painting, drawing or designing graphics and illustrations on computer, it all keeps the creative juices flowing.
In my younger years, I spent quite a lot of time painting & exibiting where I could. I had paintings exhibited at the New Jersey State Museum; Trenton City Museum at Ellarslie; Made by Hand Gallery, Trenton, NJ; The Tabor Gallery, Boston; and PDG Art Galleries, NYC.
As time went on, I devoted more time to my career as an illustrator and infographics specialist. I have had illustrations & informational graphics appear in Business Week Magazine; The Los Angeles Times; Forbes; and The Financial Mail on Sunday Newspaper in London.
Now I am getting back to my roots and devoting most of my time to my first love, painting.
