  I like my work to speak for itself, so this is going to be brief.

I am a classic realist artist.

It took me most of my life to figure out that I was an artist.
After earning a B.A. from Brandeis, and an M.A. from Colgate in literature,
I found myself constantly trying to find myself.

It wasn't until after college that I discovered my 'path' and my abilities. I began painting under the
tutelage of renowned portrait artist Paul W. McCormack, who gratefully saw something in my
'untrained' drawings and believed in talent I didn't know I had. Currently, I am continuing to refine my skills in the rigorous atelier program of the award winning artist Anthony Waichulis at the Waichulis Studio.

The creation of my art is both my greatest pleasure and most intense torture. The desire for perfection can be almost too much to suffer, but then there is a moment in painting more rewarding than any I have ever experienced: the moment when the very thing you are painting suddenly takes on a life and actually seems to look back at you. And even better, it is incredible to watch a viewer develop an intimate relationship with the subject in my painting that has nothing to do with myself as the artist. I
live for those moments.

I’m available for commissioned work. Please contact me with any questions or comments.

Thank you for stopping by.

I would like to thank The Highland Studio for their unparalleled skill at Fine Art Photography and Printmaking.
