About The Artist

My sticky sweet oil paintings transform glistening fruit into its own vibrant world. Capturing juicy pulp at the peak of ripeness highlights the beauty and vibrancy of life. My paintings are intimate, surprising, enigmatic, and bold as hell. My work is collected internationally and has been featured in art exhibitions in the U.S. and Europe since 2006. I live and work in the Greater Atlanta, Georgia, area but my vivid color palette will always reflect growing up in South Florida.

Follow me on Facebook or Instagram to see inside my studio and learn where I’m exhibiting my artwork next.
