about the artist

I am an architect by training and worked in that field for twenty-two years before realizing that my architectural career was not sufficiently fulfilling. Deciding that it was time to follow more meaningful pursuits through creativity, writing and music, I resigned my position at a large Boston area architectural firm in 2003 to recover my creativity, uncover myself, and work towards addressing issues that are meaningful to me. I now maintain a studio practice at Vernon Street Studios in Somerville, Massachusetts as part of that effort.

I am self-taught and experiment in various mediums. Currently most of my studio effort is in acrylic painting and digitally altered photography, often using one as source material for the other. I also work in watercolors and enjoy charcoal life drawing.
