I am a professional artist and I paint original acrylic abstract artwork, as well as public art. My artwork has elements of pop art and abstract expressionism. My paintings have been exhibited in art galleries around the country, and have been selected for a number of prestigious juried art shows such as the Cambridge Art Association’s National Prize Show and the Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts Annual Juried Exhibition.

While I love to create paintings, I discovered my strong interest in creating public art when I was selected to create a painted piano for the Celebrity Series of Boston and the global art installation, “Play Me, I’m Yours.”

In 2017, I was commissioned by the City of Boston’s Public Art Commission to paint an electrical box near Fenway Park. I’m excited about the actual process of creating public art and/or installing the artwork on location with observers and participants. I’ve also worked on a second electrical box with a Boston Marathon Theme along the Marathon route in Natick, Massachusetts.

Approximately ninety percent of the time, my paintings are conceptualized in my head. I have an idea, I know what I want it to look like and I begin to “paint” the picture in my mind.

I might do a rough sketch of what I had envisioned and either make changes, determine colors or the placement of lines, etc. Then I pick up the paintbrush. The other ten percent of the time, my ideas are generated from specific materials or a special technique—for example, using ground glass or glitter to embellish a painting, using stencils or making a collage using maps or unique papers.

I use these materials to generate ideas of how I could incorporate them within my artwork, using my signature style. I’m currently experimenting with resin in unique ways to further develop my artwork. In the end, I want my paintings to be fun and visually appealing.

As I begin to create, I typically paint a solid color on the entire canvas, and then place lines of tape to be uncovered later. Many of my paintings use a similar color palette of primary colors, white, black, and neutral grays.

My work focuses on lines, shapes, vibrant colors and the integration of an illusion of mosaic tile. I’m inspired to create visual parallels of my world impressions using these techniques.

This illusion of mosaic tile provides cohesion to my body of work and serves to provide balance, repetition, movement, and other elements of strong artistic design and composition. I often think about the mosaic element as confetti, to further my goal of conveying fun, exhilaration and happiness—the mosaic patterns add life and positive energy into my work.

My artwork is about having fun, bringing a smile to people’s faces and at the same time, providing a unique way of experiencing some of our most familiar objects, places, or people. I view my artwork as a visual representation of happiness, love, and the beautification of physical space. My ultimate goal is for people to personally connect to my art and enjoy the experience.
