I have been painting professionally for almost 25 years. I started out as a Fashion illustrator, after graduating from the Fashion Institute. My career path changed about 15 years ago, when I discovered i could paint on walls, I have been working as a muralist/decorative artist and consider my self blessed to be able to design large scale artworks in multi media every day. I enjoy canvas painting as well and explore many different areas in my paintings currently i am expressing myself in surrealism.
