I’ve been professionally working in the art field for over a decade as an art director and senior graphic designer. Creating in the advertising world trains me to think new and quick ideas then execute them graphically. Independently illustrating with private ownerships, magazines, children’s books, prints, and group gallery show is my true calling and love. Sometimes I do marry them together.

After graduating as an illustrator from The University of Arts in Philadelphia, my appreciation for art didn’t end with painting or sketching, it leaked over to design and photography.  Art… creating, without them, life just doesn’t seem as sweet.

  • ART Q U O T E S

    I am essentially a painter of the kind of still life composition that communicates a sense of tranquillity and privacy, moods which I have always valued above all else.
    ::: Giorgio Morandi :::

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.
    ::: Andrew Wyeth :::

    A sincere artist is not one who makes a faithful attempt to put on to canvas what is in front of him, but one who tries to create something which is, in itself, a living thing.
    ::: William Dobell :::
