Area of Operation: Florida

Everywhere I have lived, New York, Chicago, Milan, Italy and now Florida, visual art has been a driving force in my life. I am always experimenting with new contemporary techniques and art materials, and I love to instruct others on how to use them. I offer both workshops and weekly classes in a nurturing creative environment where each person is encouraged to become the artist the were meant to be. My classes explore paint, mediums, gels, grounds and offer a foundation on color and light. My personal work mixes painting and photography together. I seek to create a dialogue about the nature of connections; biological, psychological, emotional, physical and universal. Details are found in paint layers often revealing something forgotten or missing from actual experiences. Painting, drawing and image transfers of photographs conjure ambiguous realities that the viewers must complete with their own memories and experiences.
