Bio
I am a fulltime artist and Vice President of The Art Guild, Port Washington (a non-profit organization providing encouragement, education and a forum for the appreciation of the visual arts).
My primary medium is Colored Pencil. My work gravitates toward realism, although I enjoy all forms of artistic expression and experimentation. Working in realism is an opportunity to explore easily overlooked nuances in the world around me. The process of looking deeply and interpreting with each stroke gives me a profound sense of connection and gratitude for the wonders of even the simplest of objects.
