Artist Statement

I am a painter and muralist based in Athens, Georgia. I work on a wide variety of projects commissioned for public and commercial spaces and for private residences. They are executed on site or in the studio that I built in Athens.

I studied fine arts at the Rhode Island School of Design and the Florence studio of Nerina Simi, then trained in theatrical painting at the Studio and Forum of Stage Design in New York. For many years I painted scenery for theater, film, ballet, opera, and television. For my last eleven years in New York City, I was a scenic artist for the Metropolitan Opera, where I was involved in the creation of all new repertory and the restoration of existing productions.
