Biography from Rehs Galleries, Inc.:
Artist Statement:
Painting has been a part of my life since I was very young. There were always brushes and paint in the house growing up; and my mother was always at work painting. My appreciation and love for art came from her.

After graduating magna cum laude from Syracuse University with a degree in mechanical engineering, I turned down two offers for a full scholarship to graduate school to pursue my passion…painting.  I had a full network of support from my family and they encouraged me to follow my dream.

“If you do something you love your whole heart will be put forth into your work and you will work harder. With determination and persistence you will find a way to succeed.”                                                                                       –Swatland Family

Since graduating, I have adopted and applied my patience and study techniques to painting. My determination and dedication to art has opened up great opportunities. I am fortunate to learn and study with the handful of the great artists of our time. I send my sincere gratitude for their guidance and for sharing their wisdom and knowledge, for all have opened my eyes to the glorious world around me. I no longer just see a tree or a rock; I see the intricate shapes and patterns of light and shadow.  I see in terms of pieces of paint.

I currently live in Newburyport, Massachusetts and I am a member of the Putney Painters, an ongoing invitational painting group put together by Richard Schmid and Nancy Guzik at the Village Arts of Putney.

I paint mostly from life, both en plein air and in the studio. I strive to capture the essence of the scene, to break it down and simplify it to the bare essentials that grasp the true heart of the human experience.
