I have been drawing and painting all my life.  In high school I was a math and science major so I went to McMaster University in the science math program.  After completing my first year I realized what I wanted to do was paint so I worked and took evening classes in art.

My science background influences how I paint and teach.  My focus is on the use of art theories and experimentation.  This allows my students to paint what they wish to express and not my vision as they learn.  Their variety in content and style inspires me.  

I have been included in three art shows in New York City, the most recent was April 2018.  Currently I have some paintings in the Artblend gallery located in Florida
