Art has been my passion for most of my life. After my studies at the Art Students League in New York City, my occupation was in graphic art and illustration. During that time and for many years after, my endeavor has been fine art.
My paintings are in private and corporate collections throughout the United States and have been exhibited in the following juried shows: THREE RIVERS ARTS FESTIVAL, Pittsburgh PA, The PENNATIONAL, Ligonier PA, ALLENTOWN OUTDOOR ART FESTIVAL, Buffalo, NY, SOUTHERN TIER ARTS & CRAFTS SHOW, Corning,NY, EAST AURORA OUTDOOR SHOW, East Aurora NY, CLOTHESLINE ART SHOW, Rochester NY, CURBSTONE ART SHOW, Rochester, NY, ROCHESTER ART CLUB SHOW, Rochester NY, Amarillo Fine Arts Association Shows, Amarillo TX and Summer Art Shows, Watch Hill RI. My paintings have been published in Instructor, Southwest Art and Panhandle Health magazines.
Painting with watercolor and acrylic inspires me. My style has changed from realism to include impressionistic and abstract compositions. Many of these are purely intuitive The various papers I use allow me a freedom to learn new ways to express my muse.
My drawings,photographs and digital art pieces are other forms that excite my passion. I hope you enjoy viewing all my creative work. Thank you. I appreciate your interest and any order you might place.
