Prior to my life with art, I loved to sketch as a child, and always dreamed I would live on a beautiful island and paint, a secret I shared with few because I never knew that wish would come true. It did come true and I moved to Amelia Island in 2000 and started painting after corporate work duties at night and on weekends and finally became a full time artist in 2010.

I have a working studio/gallery in the Blue Door Artists' studios in the historic district of Amelia Island.
