​Artist Statement and Bio

As a contemporary realist, I try to bring a sense of proportion and light to my canvases.  My work embodies a balance of realism and vibrant color that I hope allows the viewer to see everyday objects in a visually interesting way. 


​All my life I have studied different types of art, both formally and informally.  My paintings have been exhibited, and sold all over the country, and are in private collections throughout the world.  While living in Southern Florida, my work was exhibited in Museums and galleries in Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, Coral Springs and Boca Raton.  For four years I was President of the Boca Raton Museum's Artist's Guild, and served on the Board of Directors of the Museum.   

Since 2011 I have been an Artist in Residence for Oceania Cruises, MARINA, RIVIERA and the INSIGNIA , have become my floating art gallery, where I exhibit my work and teach art classes. Traveling all over the world has allowed me  to grow as a person and as a painter.  I am so grateful for this wonderful opportunity. 


Prints and gicless of my originals are available upon request

                                                              



I hope you enjoy your visit.
