I am a representational oil painter, preferring to paint from life. Mixing and manipulating oil paint and maintaining a state of flow, I delve into the process to capture the light, form and color of people, places, and things. I love contrast and color. Painting for me is in finding the solution and leaving out the unnecessary details.
I was born and raised in New Rochelle, NY. My father was an artist and advertising executive who had a strong influence on me, and my art.
There was a time in my life when I felt the burden and stress from trying to do everything. We put impossible demands on ourselves and then feel frustrated and less than when we fail to get it all done. I know now, we are all worthy and you simply don't have to do it all.
My journey has been to simplify the complicated and be happy by leaving some things undone.
