Born and raised in Torrington Connecticut. Moved to South Florida at age 10 where I have a great career and settled in Margate, Fl. I always enjoyed drawing and doodling on paper but never was very good at it. Not until my late forties did I start to bring colored pencils and paper to work and every drawing started to become more advanced and elaborate. Still not very confident until I started to receive compliments from co-workers which inspired me to continue. I feel I have a certain style that continues to grow with each drawing. I hope this inspires others to continue to search for your talent no matter your age and to live with no regrets. One of my favorite sayings is: "You'll regret the things you didn't do, more than the ones you did"
