Of particular interest is creating artistic
narratives, in which an individuals personal story is
told through images, both literal and metaphorical. For example,
the piece titled "Toolbelt" was created for a woman
who loved to build things with wood, and who often said she
was happiest when she wore her tool belt. Lilies were also
extremely symbolic and important to her. You can see how her
tastes and interests come through in the drawing.
My work has appeared in shows throughout New
York, Boston and Southern California. Murals can be seen in
office buildings and cafes, as well as homes throughout the
Boston area. Drawings and portraits are created on commission.
Giclée prints of the drawings and some
of the paintings can be ordered upon request. Please feel
