I was born in New York and raised in Massachusetts with my loving and very supportive family. My earliest memories consist of drawing and making  things with my hand. My mother and father were artists who taught me to be myself and how to express myself. My mother would teach me the art of how to mix primary colors to get secondary ones, how to take my time and really enjoy what I was doing. My father would teach me  how to use all the tools in his wood working  shop, tie knots, use one-and two-point perspective to create realistic drawings and enjoy the thought of building things.Visual art is a language with which I respond to and reflect upon my life. I have seldom succeeded in keeping a diary, but I have almost always carried a drawing pad and camera ever since I could remember.

 
Growing up, I took every art class I could. Graduating, I won the high school Art Award  Most Creative Artist. I found myself at Rockland Community College I got a degree in Fine Arts, it was a perfect match  . Here I was able to explore different avenues and learn as much as I could about art and all its elements to really expand my mind about thinking outside the box. From here I enrolled in Lehman College and happily  graduated in January 2012 with a Bachelors Degree in Sculpture and a minor in Education.

At The City University of Lehman College  I had the opportunity to get to know and meet some amazing people and artists. I have embraced various artistic opportunities and have had the fortune of working with and learning from a great number of talented individuals. With each artistic effort, I continue to refine my technical skills and apply them to my creative base. I utilizes all mediums, but prefer welding, but is not limited to any of these fields and welcomes all new projects and ideas.

Art has always been my passion. The Art I create no matter what it is; painting, drawing, photography or sculpture it really defines who I am and how I view the world.  I am currently residing in Hudson Valley New York   and would like to thank my family for their love and support throughout my art career. 

Thank you,
