My Artistic Expression of Life with Cancer


After being encouraged by my high school teacher to join the school newspaper staff as an illustrator and cartoonist, my love of art and design was kindled.

Following a short stint digging ditches I realized a paint brush was lighter than a shovel and I enrolled in art school. At 22 I was fortunate to be invited to display my work at a one man show at the Whistler House in Lowell, MA.

My career as an artist has encompassed 50 plus years spanning a variety of endeavors including film production, animation, set design for television and film, sculpted and carved signage, and continuing work in murals and furniture design for commercial and private clients.

This current collection of paintings is a personal reflection, an artistic expression of living with breast and pancreatic cancer since 2006.

For any purchasing inquiries or non-profit groups where the donation and selling of an item can be earmarked for cancer programs, please contact the artist at:
