I started painting in 1987 with acrylics for about a year taking classes with Howard Connelly and started taking oil classes in 1988 from C Russell Neagle. I instantly fell in love with oils and could not go back to acrylic, continuing taking oil classes for over ten years.

I am an  elected artist member of Lyme Art Association, the oldest continuing art colony in the United States. Childe Hassam, Willard Metcalf and Carleton Wiggins were some of the founding members of the American Impressionist movement in Lyme Connecticut.

I recently moved to Melbourne Beach and is a clinical scientist at Viera Hospital and enjoy painting the Florida landscape. I consider myself a Contemporary Impressionist and I love the vibrant colors of Florida, painting mostly landscape, seascapes, and, most often, wetland areas.
