Now I live in Yonkers, New York where I enjoy my family life. My "day job" presently is the head of design developing for Marketing & Communication at Shearman & Sterling LLP, 599 Lexington Avenue, New York, NY 10022. My paintings are colorful, textured, and technically executed. My images weave images of music, my past and remains of my daily life, Albanian and American patterns and compositions. Expressionistic, painterly, and inspirational.

I received my BFA from the Institute of Arts in Tirana, Albania in 1981. In January 1988 I escaped from Albania for political and artistic freedom. Later immigrated to USA where I pursued my Master of Fine Arts at Michigan State University, I graduated in 1991.
