My portraits celebrate our shared humanity and the beauty of the everyday. Not merely the faces of models, celebrities, or the rich and powerful but real people.
Colorful, expressionistic paintings on mundane surfaces like sheets of wallpaper, paint chips, and brown paper bags. Stripped of rhetoric they feature the most commonplace yet most beautiful sight, the human face.

I’ve always been interested in drawing as long as I can remember, but did not attend art school or make it part of my professional life. Then in 2012, I discovered a love for painting portraits, and in 2017 left my corporate career, sold the house, and moved to a small apartment in western Massachusetts so I could afford to spend more time painting.
Since then I’ve shown my art in group and solo exhibitions, painted public art in Amherst and Northampton, MA, and been interviewed in local magazines, newspapers, and on TV.
