"Murals, commissioned paintings, trompe l'oeil, portraits and fine art paintings."
I was born in 1957 to world wandering parents, who never wanted to stay in one place. Growing up, some of the places we lived for a few years each, were - England, Papua New Guinea, Ireland and eventually the USA.
After I attended 4 years of art college in Ireland, and a year as a photo assistant in New York City, I moved to Maryland and married. Since 1986 I have been a professional artist, painting commissioned works, portraits and murals.
High School (including 4 years of art education) – Port Moresby International School, Papua New Guinea, 1971-1974
Art College – Dun Laoghaire School of Art & Design, Ireland, 1976-1980. Majoring in serigraphy and photography.
Due the fact that almost all of my artwork has been commissioned by private, commercial and non profit organizations over the years. I have not had the time to actively pursue exhibiting my personal work until recently.
