After taking years of woodshop in school, when I graduated I wanted to be an architect, but money was tight so I joined the Air Force after a year of college.  I stayed in the military for 8 very LONG years.  I really didn’t start to realize that other people couldn’t draw anything they wanted to like I could until I was in my late 20s.  After leaving the military I joined my fiancee in Boston and we went to UMASS together for a year and I transferred to the Art Institute of Boston after that. Somewhere in there I started doing murals and faux finishes to help pay my way through art school. I spent most  years on the Dean’s list (a new achievement for me as I was more ‘social’ in high school) and graduated in 2002 with my BFA in Illustration and Animation.  I continued to do murals and decorative painting through the years while serving other ‘odd-jobs’ (secretary/ Facilities Manager/ Closet designer) Last year I decided to start getting real about teaching art classes and opened my studio (then in Hudson) to the public, I ran classes out of my studio and around August found my current shop on rt. 20 in Northborough.  I love learning new skills and I love sharing what I know with other people.  I have renovated my house single handedly,I can do all things a typical handyperson can do, I also play with concrete and paint and skydive.
