About The Artist
I have always been interested in culture and it reflects in my art. My paintings are a slice of life past and present that tell a story. I focus on developing visual relationships and creating a dialog with iconic images, advertisements, cultural ideas and issues. The ideas develop using a montage of images and a story emerges which invites the viewer to experience the tale. The creative process I use comes from my educational background and life experiences. I use images I connect with and hope the viewer finds a connection that either evokes a feeling or thought. My art is a metaphor for life, the complexity of everyday life reveals that we are all simply human.
I employ various techniques ranging from photography, silk-screening, digital, and painting whatever the painting dictates. The painting is developed with acrylics and other painting materials.
My style can be referred to as New American/Pop Art. I am represented in Galleries throughout the US and my art is collected internationally.
I hold a BS from the University of Vermont and then continued my studies at Plymouth State University in NH where I studied Graphic Design, Fine Art and Photography. I have lived and traveled around the world the Caribbean, Germany, Norway, USA and aboard a cruise ship. I believe my diverse background has helped in my creative process creating my very unique style.
