This biography from the Archives of AskART:
"Art has been important to me since I can remember and I've loved it my entire life. When choosing a career, I never considered fine art a practical option. I did, however, expand my B.S. Physics to include a second degree in Studio Art. It was only after "retiring" from 15 years in engineering, when my third child was born, that I started my second career in art. I have studied art recently from Corinne Lalin (painterly realism) for two and a half years and Frank Arcuri (realism-old world style) for one and a half years. I feel like my work is constantly evolving.

I love painting still lifes because I feel each painting is a story and shows a little of my personality. I like forms to look dimensional and achieve this by painting the light on the objects and really pushing the darks. This is a traditional old world style of painting. Sometimes I like to diverge from painting historically traditional subjects and paint fun subjects like Corona bottles with limes, donuts, and evening shoes with lingerie and jewelry. I also paint still lifes that tell a person's story. I take someone's favorite or meaningful "things" and paint a still life of them that they can hang on the wall and see every day. I don't paint from photos because I like to look around objects and see the character, light and shadow in objects first hand. Also, photos turn a three dimensional setting into two dimensions, which counters my efforts to paint objects that appear to have weight. Painting is something I wake up wanting to do every day. I hope you enjoy seeing my work half as much as I like painting it.

I have been exhibiting my art in galleries and shows for eight years now. It seems like people really enjoy the way I paint still lifes. There have been many first time art buyers purchasing my paintings which makes me feel wonderful. I am also fortunate to have collectors who are now purchasing my art. Thank you to those who have bought my paintings and want to meet me and get to know me. It is really nice meeting you too. When people tell me they look at my painting(s) hanging in their homes and it makes them feel so happy to be living with my artwork, I feel fortunate and honored. Yes, I know it's not brain surgery, but it's all good.
