I am an artist originally from New York, currently residing in Brazil. My paintings reflect scenes that inspire me, from the open farmlands of North America to a small seaport in South America.
My journey as artist started back in Brooklyn, New York, drawing and doodling whenever I could. I have worked professionally as an illustrator, and it wasn’t until later I began dabbling in paint where my passion for painting began. I found it liberating working in paints, the movement of it and the mixing of colors, bringing life to a particular scene or image.
My goal of an artist is to capture a scene where we sometimes overlook, whether the way the sunlight reflects on a doorway, or the way trees seem like they are dancing in an open field.
I hope in my paintings I can capture a feeling, emotion or make someone feel inspired in some way when viewing my artwork.
