Simply holding a paintbrush in my hands makes me happy. It always has. As a child, I was punished for painting on the walls; as an adult, I get paid for doing just that. That’s true job satisfaction.

Though I have painted for fun all of my life, I first began hiring myself out as an artist to help raise money for graduate studies in anthropology. Later, I painted as a diversion while I worked as a social worker, and finally began contributing to community murals. Since 1991 I have been a self-employed artist, working with architects, designers, artists, and clients in New York, New Jersey, California, Arizona, Mexico, and Italy.  I speak fluent Spanish and draw on my travels and anthropological background to bring a multicultural perspective to my artistic approach.
