About

The Healing power of ART!

I was born in Munhall, PA and grew up in Dormont. I am proud to be a Pittsburgher, having lived here my entire life. I paint full time and sell my art from my studio perched on top of the historic South Side Slopes.

Beginning at the age of 13, and after 10 years of suffering with ulcerative colitis I had life saving surgery and now wear a permanent ileostomy. I will never forget my Mom at my bedside and the priest administering last rights. My will to survive and to do something meaningful with my life was what motivated me to get well.

While recuperating from surgery I studied art, many of the old masters who inspired me to begin painting as a form of therapy. I started selling my art, my first public art exhibit at the Pittsburgh Aviary Wings & Wildlife Show in 1988. The demand for my work grew and continues to this day.
The fascinating people I meet, current events and life experiences inspire me. One of my most inspiring commissions sent me to Megjugorje, Yugoslavia in 1990. The challenge was to transfer onto canvas my feelings of the little village where there have been reported sightings of the Blessed Mother.

No matter the subject, my work can always be described as lively, bold and colorful.

Life, history and the natural world serve as my inspiration; as does my hometown of Pittsburgh. Here, my family roots run deep and it's thrilling to live my life in a city that's big and small at the same time.

My medium of choice is Enamel paints mixed with sand from the Monongahela River. I discovered this unconventional mixture while using art as therapy during an arduous recuperation from surgery. These materials were easily available to me during that time. Sand from client's collections is often incorporated into their commissioned pieces.

I apply many layers of paint incorporating the sand directly on to the canvas using brushes and drips resulting in a unique texture with vibrancy and depth.

As I reflect on my life, it's my decade-long struggle with Ulcerative Colitis that impacted me most. through surgery, I was given a second chance. I found my path through art. I'm a believer in "giving back", using my art I've been able to work with numerous charities and fundraisers.
My hope is when people view my paintings, they find a smile.

Many of my paintings can be purchased as PRINTS on the STORE page of this site. To purchase or commission an original please contact the studio.

I am blessed to have my art in homes and businesses in the United States and around the world, including Australia, Singapore, Japan, Canada, Italy and Sweden.

"For many years I have been involved with many local and national charities raising much needed funds.
It is important for me to "give back". My art enables me to help others in a unique way.
I simply didn't plan any of this, all I had was the will to live, to do well and help others.
I am so very grateful for this fantastic ride!"
