My introduction to painting came in the form of illustrated books, gifts from aunts and uncles.  Animals, people, trees, and flowers—I couldn’t get enough of those images.

At some point, I discovered the Art Students League and School of Visual Arts.  Ever since then, I’ve devoted my time to the study of anatomy, portraiture, book illustration, and much more.  My work is about my surroundings and the things I love.
