I was born in 1964, in Miami, Florida. After receiving an MA in International Relations from the University of South Florida in 1995, I moved to Paris, France. I currently live in Nice, in the South of France. When I moved to Paris, I was working as a screenwriter, but as soon as I discovered that I could sell my paintings over the internet, I concentrated solely on painting. That was in 2001.

 

My first solo exhibition was in 2000, in a small gallery in Nice. Over the years, I've had several solo and group exhibitions, and my work is now in numerous corporate and private collections across the world.

 

The director Tony Randel featured several of my paintings in the film, "The Double Born" in 2008. I participated, with Judith Wolberink Gallery, in the Affordable Art Fair in Amsterdam in 2014, did three paintings for an exhibition organized in 2012 by the Mayor of the town of La Gaude, in the South of France, several paintings for two hotels in Paris, and for the album and cd covers of musicians. 

 

A portrait I did of Catherine Tanvier, a friend and former Top Women's French Tennis Player (Number One in France, 16th in the world) was featured in L'Equipe Magazine in 2011. My work was also featured in Downtown L.A. Life Magazine in 2009. My work has appeared in numerous online and print publications.

 

In 2012, I donated work to the Centre Universitaire Mediterraneen de Nice (The Mediterranean University Center of Nice) for an Earthquake Aid Auction for the people of Haiti.

 

One of my pieces became part of the permanent collection of the Douro Museum in Portugal, after I participated in the 6th International Printmaking Biennial in Douro in 2012.

 

Several of my works were featured on Saatchi Art over the years, and in 2017 I did a few pieces for their first catalogue of limited edition prints.
