My inspiration and creativity began as a child raised in a small town in Southern California. I've always felt the need to create...the joy and satisfaction I got from creating something from nothing was the beginning of my creative life. I began oil painting at the age of sixteen. I experimented with several different mediums and decided oil painting was my love.
In 2006 I had my first exhibition at the Museum of the Living Artist in San Diego, California. My work has been featured at Buon Appetito in Little Italy, San Diego, where I had my first solo exhibit and opening night. I since have had several exhibitions from Dana Point, CA to Little Italy's Artwalk and San Diego's Artwalk on the Bay to San Francisco, Ca. I was honored to win the Peoples' Choice Awards at the Rancho Santa Fe Art Rhythm and Wine event for fall 2015 and also honored to be the featured artist in Chaleur Magazine for May 2018.
My work resides in several private collections throughout the U.S., including Scottsdale, AZ, Fallbrook, CA, San Diego, CA, Los Angeles, CA, Paramus, NJ, and Brooklyn, NY.
I'm currently creating works in oil on wood panel with embellishments of silver and gold leaf.
My goal is to express myself through my art and make an emotional connection with people.
I am available for commissions and selective brand mentions.
