Being a full time artist was always my dream ever since I was graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Mason Gross School of the Arts (Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ) in 1988. After graduation I remained in Central New Jersey, in the New Brunswick/Somerset/Franklin Park area & have been selling my work throughout the U.S. and in Europe, and am a freelance illustrator & graphic designer as well as a fine artist. I have participated in over 150 solo, juried & group exhibitions, and am a member of several NJ Arts organizations.
My work is shown in galleries, Holistic & Crafter Expos, health centers & local businesses in the Metropolitan, Tri-State area, & is in many private collections.
More than a decade ago I started giving private art and art marketing lessons & enjoy helping other creatives reach their goals.
The various media I work with include oils, acrylics, pen & ink, watercolor, pencil, charcoals, collage, mixed media and photography, along with digital art & graphic design created in Photoshop.
I have been commissioned to create a wide range of artwork, including historical & book illustrations, pet portraits, paintings, graphics and designs for crafter & greeting card companies and businesses. My illustrations, photographs and poetry have appeared in national & international printed & on-line publications.
My own visual artwork focuses on mythological and Earth-centered spiritual themes & often encompasses my love of the Gothic & Steampunk cultures.
My love of nature, travel & exploring different cultures inspire my paintings and photography. I enjoy the challenge of creating pieces to meet my client’s needs, as well as my own self-expressive fine artworks.
