About

Painted furniture with hyper-realistic embellishment.

I am a self taught artist with a Bachelors of Science from UMass. For the past fifteen years or so I have primarily worked with Fluid Acrylics on surfaces that do not require framing, such as furniture, household objects, slate, stones and walls. Recently I have branched out into portraits of animals on canvas. I paint a wide range of subject matter from sneakers to teacups with a focus on close ups of nature. My versatility means that anything at all can be the focus of an inspiration. My work is intensely colored, detail oriented and joyful. Florals often emphasize the life cycle of a plant from bud to bloom to brown shriveled petals to seed pod. Furniture pieces and murals display Trompe L’oeil, whimsy and bold color schemes. I am known for my realism. Most pieces include insects such as bumble bees, lady bugs, butterflies and dragonflies, sometimes featured prominently, sometimes almost hidden. Previous pursuits have included miniature three dimensional portraits of houses painted on wood, animal portraits on stone, life sculpture in clay and life drawing. I often work to a client’s specifications.
