I spent my teenage years surrounded by the art and culture of Rome, Italy. I attended the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, Maryland and Parson’s School of Art in Paris, France.
After several years as an Art Director in various multinational advertising agencies in both Singapore and Australia, I returned to the US and began a successful career as a painter. I've lived for two decades in Arizona, now in Flagstaff surrounded by the northern mountains of this sublime country.
I work in both figurative and abstract painting styles. I've always been attracted to detail and pattern as well as realism. The abstract acrylic flow paintings explore pattern in free and expressive approach, offering the viewer an internal experience of movement and detail. My figurative work harks back to my years in Italy and the influence of early Renaissance painting. I try and capture the stylized figures, rich costumes and ornate borders of that period and apply those to the subjects.
