Welcome! Now living in Florida, I am a New York born and raised artist. My desire to create is inherent, so why I paint and why the way I paint, has less to do with my formal training or a philosophy and more to do with an inner drive to live my life feeding and fulfilling this inherent desire.
My most recent paintings are oil on canvas or oil and acrylic on canvas. Earlier work has been in oil or mixed media using acrylic, charcoal, pencil and pastel on canvas, linen or masonite. I am currently enjoying working on paintings which have a bit of realistic humor to them, in order to speak the universal language...a smile.
Self experimentation, formal study of photo realist, classical and abstract artist impressed me to develop my style derived from both traditional and self realized techniques. The contrast between the perfection, discipline and exactitude demanded by photo realism and the spontaneity, freedom and energy of abstracts, provides me with the Yin-Yang balance that I feel is essential in both my artistic and personal life.
I believe each of us can do at least one thing very well; the key is to find that passion...then to do it. My paintings are created by passion. As I paint each area I surrender to its needs, Painting is an act of love.
