“Life is not a dress rehearsal” – Christian Giannini (1960 – 1993)
I love to travel and paint. The chance to see new places, meet new friends and expand my viewpoint is a gift that I profoundly appreciate.
I can’t travel all the time, so recently I decided to make my home in Rockland, Maine, a beautiful area steeped in history and art.
In the last decade I resided and painted in Amsterdam in the Netherlands, traveled and painted throughout SE Asia, visited Australia and Bali, and in 2013 and 2016 I made a two long painting trips to Rome, Florence and southern Italy to begin a journey to connect to my Italian roots, where I hold a second citizenship.
I am also involved in public art and the restoration of visual art in architectural settings. I have worked on historical restorations of large-scale decorations and murals in churches, theaters, state capitals and even the White House office building.
I grew up in Chicago studying at the American Academy of Art, Chicago’s Palette and Chisel Art Club, and later at The Lyme Academy of Fine Arts. In Old Lyme, Connecticut.
Always, I pursue my lifelong love of plein-air painting as well as working on studio and mural pieces. I’m actively seeking commissions and representation.
