About the Artist

I have always had a passion for drawing and painting. I believe that God has blessed me with this talent. I am mostly self-taught. I did take private lessons with Rafael Desoto at his home years ago.

I married in 1965 and raised a family. I always believed that family comes first. Therefore, my passion for art became second. I retired in 2005 after 32 years of working as a Lobby Fire Safety Director. This now allowed me time to focus on my passion for drawing and painting.

I have been a member of the Wet Paints Group in Sayville for many years; I am also a member of the Smithtown Art Group. I am happy to say that I have received many awards and have sold many of my paintings through out the years.

I enjoy painting mostly landscapes and still life in acrylic and pastels. I am now interested in portrait painting. I have completed an eight week portrait painting course with Bill Graf at the Aletier in Flowerfield, in St. James, N.Y.

Please contact me if you are interested in purchasing any one of my paintings.
