What are your most significant contributions to the arts in our community?
I am honored to donate my work to our local charitable fund-raising organizations. It’s the best way that I know
to contribute. I try to be as approachable as possible to anyone looking for help finding their direction in art.
How Can You Inspire Others?
I encourage budding artists of all ages to be themselves, to paint subjects that they love and care about and
to pick a medium that best expresses their personal style.
How did your career in the arts begin?
Right after art school, I starting working on the Atlantic City Boardwalk as a quick sketch portrait artist.
That is when I developed my love for the pastel medium. I knew since age 4, that art was all that I ever wanted to do.
