I was born dyslexic and had to be taught how to speak in special classes by nuns.I used drawing as a form as communication from a very early age.As a performance artist I have been working as a professional caricaturist since 1984. Caricatures provide both fun entertainment as well as a lasting keepsake for all special event....for kids of all ages. It is a pleasure to bring smiles to so many faces.I also spend much of my time painting and drawing. I enjoy experimental art. I am always searching for a new way of painting and expressing myself. Many of my paintings are abstract or expressionism in nature. My subject matters are varied...nudes, floral, landscapes. music, wildlife, nature, etc.....
