Brooklyn, New York is where I was born. My interest in art started early. I was drawn to the trees in my neighborhood they were always filled with color, movement and light.I lived in the city most of the year. In the summer I would spend time in the country in upstate New York. My paintings reflected the trees, sky and lakes. They were filtered through my dreams and imagination. I paint with watercolor, gouache or acrylic. Everything moves and changes in my paintings. After college I lived to New Orleans until the storm. I then returned to the East Coast. While studying art, I was highly influenced by Impressionism, Surrealism and Pop Art. Many of my art pieces have been in numerous exhibits in museums, galleries and universities. My paintings are meant to allow the viewer a space to create their own dreams.
