It all started when...
My life is a story of art and the cultivation of my curiosity. Originally from Montreal, Canada, I pursued an acting career in film, television and commercials, traveling between my home, New York, and Los Angeles. Feeling a deep urge to express myself more fully, I began installing and contracting decorative arts in Northern California. There, I met my life partner, a French winemaker, and decided to join him in Northern Virginia’s Wine Country. Amidst such bucolic surroundings, I committed to developing my paintings and sculptural pieces to the highest standard possible while honing my technique, skill, and craftsmanship.
I have been in the art industry for more than two decades, curating, teaching, and now producing in my home studio on a beautiful hill in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. Initially self-taught, I recently earned my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in painting and drawing from The Contemporary Art Department of Shepherd University. My works are on exhibit at Artists In Middleburg (Middleburg, Virginia) as well as other galleries and shows around the country. l practice yoga, and enjoy moments with my sweet horse. I spend much time in my spiritual home of Northern California visiting my sons, exploring nature, enjoying wine country, and working on new art collections.
