ABOUT

A native New Yorker, I am an artist and designer living in Vancouver, BC. Using oil and cold wax, and working alla prima, I strive to capture the essence and characters of my subjects with thick, sensual texture and loose brushwork. My inspiration comes from all over: the beauty of a particular gesture, luminous light, the feel and energy of a tender encounter with another, the physical beauty of my surroundings. Most of all, I strive to communicate the essential energy of a moment.

My works are in private collections in North America, Europe, and Asia. An Active Member of the Federation of Canadian Artists and member of the North Vancouver Arts Council, I studied at the School of Visual Arts, Parsons School of Design, Grand Central Atelier, Art Students League of New York and hold a B.A. from the University of Pennsylvania.

I am available for commissions, demos, and live painting event bookings. I love to share what I know, so feel free to reach out to say hi and chat about art.
