Born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, I was always interested in drawing and painting. I briefly attended the Philadelphia College of Art (now called the University of the Arts) and The Art Institute of Philadelphia. Unsatisfied with my progress after years of trial and error, I enrolled in the Advanced Fine Art Program at Studio Incamminati to obtain classical drawing and painting skills in representational art. Access to internationally recognized teachers and award-winning professional artists such as Leona Shanks, Natalie Italiano, Lea Wight, Steve Early, Darren Kingsley, Kerry Dunn, and Dan Thompson, has allowed me to gain the tools I needed to pursue a career as a fine artist.
Currently, I am an instructor at Studio Incamminati where I maintain a studio.
