I've been painting full-time since 2004, after leaving a 13 year career as an advertising art director in NYC and Chicago. 

I have more memories drawing as a child than doing anything else. I got my degree in figure drawing and graphic design from Eastern Michigan University. 

I didn’t study painting in school but I like to take workshops now with painters I admire, it pushes me and always keeps me learning.

In early 2000 I started freelancing at my job and by late 2004 I was painting full time working out of my home studio. I've been painting nearly every day since then. Studying light and shadow. I feel very lucky to spend my days in the studio now. 

I don't think I could ever get tired of painting and sharing it with others through teaching.
