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 rescued 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 IÕve come to realize that they have 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.
