Through painting, I strive to reveal the beauty around us that we often miss as we go about our everyday lives. The painting process brings quiet to me from today’s noisy, fractured world. I draw on my lifetime of collected memories by expressing them on canvas, whether they come from my years on Long Island, the New England coast, or more recently, the South Carolina Lowcountry. The people, scenes, and objects from my life provide endless subject matter. When viewers linger with pleasure over my paintings, I feel my artwork has achieved its goal.
Before moving south, my business career with a Fortune 200 corporation included management of such design projects as the interior of corporate headquarters in New York and Connecticut and design of executive aircraft.
I paint in the style of classical realism primarily in still life and landscape. While living in New York, I studied at the Stevenson Academy of Fine Arts and the ALLI and continue the study of art at the Hilton Head Art League, augmented by individual instruction and workshops. Original oil paintings and limited edition Giclee prints on canvas are on view at my studio by appointment. I welcome meeting new people, patrons, collectors, fellow artists and friends and sharing in the discourse of the amazing world of art.
