My professional background is that of serving others as a clinical psychologist. Since childhood, however, I have always had a strong passion for art...that of painting. As such, one day I decided to attempt a portrait of our rescue tuxedo cat, Max. Our beloved Eskie became my next project which further reinforced my desire to develop my skills in painting. Reflecting on these experiences I have come to realize that they served to launch an incredible journey for me in the world of art. I now accept commission work as well as continue painting for the intrinsic rewards it offers me.
