After studying fine arts in Los Angeles, I focused on being a musician, jewelry designer, and filmmaker for 3 decades before I began exploring my skills in abstract painting. Because I ‘m obsessed with traveling, I bounced around the world living in California, Oregon, Hawaii, Bali, Thailand, Vietnam, and Mexico. I finally relocated to the beautiful Appalachian mountains outside of Asheville, North Carolina, where I began painting in both acrylic and oil but eventually found my voice (and passion) with using oil and cold wax medium.

I am currently merging my love of painting, filmmaking, and technology by creating digital NFT artwork as well as attaching AR (augmented reality) components to my physical paintings.

I have had gallery exhibitions in both Mexico and the US along with being featured as the cover artist in the artist magazine, Rapid River. I will have 2 solo exhibitions featuring my artwork with AR in the summer of 2021.

My artwork can be found in collections around the world.
