1970, Washington, DC

I was born into an artistic family, in a place for politics. I got out soon after my 18th birthday and moved to California, there a teacher sent me on a quest to Florence, Italy, where I fell in love with all things Italian. That was in 1990, I have been here ever since.

I paint in the style of Magic Realism, my own style, based on realistic subjects, where I tweak the dimensions to add time and space, accentuating colors and details.
