"I have always had a drive to pursue art as a profession; my influences and inspirations are dependent also on other artists as  Willem de Kooning, Chuck Close, Lucian Freud, the chaotic linear brush strokes of Jackson Pollock, and the unexpected and bold visual definitions of Pablo Picasso.
My interest in art as a love and passion in its earlier stages was inspired by the traditional works of Italian artists of the Renaissance. Nevertheless, I ,also, fulfilled an internship for one year at Rhode Island School of Design on the subject of Landscape Architecture. Moreover, I have been painting seriously for the  past twenty years as my work began to mature continuously with several appreciative acceptances from curators and Gallery Directors on the East Coast."
