I am a self-taught artist, having inherited this innate creativity from both parents. I hail from Syracuse, NY where I spent most of my formative years being influenced by artists like Jack White, Charles White, Barry Irving, Dali, Van Gogh and Picasso. While I dislike copyists, I have a great respect for the artists who are original in their style and stamp of work.
While I've not pursued a degree in fine arts, I have taken art courses in high school and college. I’ve had the privilege of studying and working with artists Jack White and Barry Irving.
My artwork's been entered in juried competitions throughout high school, college and most recently Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series, where my artwork achieved semifinalist in the New York City regional. My artwork's been displayed in major art veinues such as New York and Detroit. My work is owned by professionals of education, medicine, law as well as music. I am proud to say that multi-Grammy awardee Wynton Marsalis owns one of my artworks.
Art is a spiritual journey that explores inner thoughts and emotions; evolving a higher consciousness. Artistic expression represents the reconciliation between internal forces. Art, ultimately, is liberation, freeing one's spirit from thoughts, philosophies, and inhibitions that restrict and bind.
The media in which I work is oil, acrylic, pencil, and ink, pastel on canvas, paper and wood.
