I was born and raised in Worcester, Massachusetts, and have lived in North Carolina since 2003. Much of the work I am making now is representational, done by hand using oil paint and brushes in a realistic style. I also make abstract paintings and collages.
I was trained as a draftsman at a trade school, where I learned how to draw machine parts. Almost everything else I know about art and painting I've figured out at the easel and from books.
