My art career began as an understudy, twenty three years ago in Europe, following advanced studies in design, which led to about seven years of custom freelance work, where the diversity of subjects required adaptation. Consequently I consider myself to be mostly self-taught. With the opening of my first studio, fourteen years ago in the U.S., I continued custom work while expanding experimentation with the availability of modern materials. From the beginning my interests were to create unique artworks involving multiple subjects and styles, satisfying my long anticipated dreams. This experimentation continues today, creating new ideas, techniques, styles and diversity. I have participated in over thirty eight curated solo, group and guild exhibitions in nine countries, on three continents. My work has appeared in international art books and publications. Donations of work and time have been made to charities and public instruction workshops.
