About

I am a visual artist, previously from the New Jersey Shore, now living and working in southeastern Pennsylvania.

I primarily work in two mediums - oil and watercolor.

The focus of my work is marine art - mostly the oceans and bays of the mid Atlantic region.

I am a signature member of the ASMA  (American Society of Marine Artists) as well as an official artist for the US Coast Guard.

My original paintings can be seen and purchased privately, in juried shows and exhibits, and through select galleries along the east coast including Marine Arts Gallery in Bonita Springs, FL, Main Street Gallery in Manasquan, NJ and Bishop's Stock in Snow Hill, MD. Works have been purchased by and commissions have been received from private collectors, businesses, and corporations. A number of works have been reproduced as signed and numbered giclée prints. These prints have been purchased privately and by organizations including AtlantiCare Healing Arts Foundation.

I taught drawing and painting classes at the NJ Shore for 13 years prior to relocating to PA. I currently present demos and workshops through private studios and arts organizations.
