Born and raised on Long Island, Art has been part of my vocabulary at a very young age. As I got older, this love never faded and eventually I went on to becoming a self-taught professional Artist currently residing in Phoenix, AZ. My first painting I did professionally was “Motley Eye” which became a series of 5 paintings.
Acrylics have been my medium since day one. While using acrylics on canvas, my style and technique can vary by the minute. Blending electrifying colors onto a blank canvas, using various painting knives, brushes, turkey basters, my fingertips, anything is possible in my studio. Abstract expressionism as well as gestural (action) painting, and cubism is my personal favorite style of painting.
I paint spontaneously what I am feeling using bright colors, bold strokes, and emotion. My inspiration comes from life experiences, and current state of mind. I usually don’t think about what I’m going to paint, I just paint. I’ve always admired Picasso and Pollock as my two favorite Artists.
