I grew up in an Art home with a Photographer Father, an Elementary School Art Teacher Mother, and Artistic Sister and Brother. Art was always a huge part of my life so going to the Art school where my parents met was probably meant to be. I studied Illustration at Philadelphia College of Art (when it was called that) and then got side tracked in Advertising when I graduated.

While I was in college and a few years after I exhibited my Soft-Sculpture in Galleries in Phila, New York, New Jersey, and Baltimore. Was published in the books “Outstanding American Illustrators” and “3-Dimensional Illustration” and magazines “Print Magazine” and “Baltimore Magazine”.

A weird sequence of events landed me in Tattooing for the past 16 years, with my own Tattoo Shop/Art Playground for last 7 of them.

I love Tattooing but the Sculptor in me couldn’t be denied and I started sculpting again with skulls – I love taking skulls and assembling them with manmade objects that are old and discarded, but still beautiful in their own way. It’s like putting together a puzzle of shapes and textures – and giving new life to the dead and discarded.

I’ve been told what to do with my talents most of my life, and it has definitely influenced my art – this is my own personal artistic voice – my sanity – my passion.
