I paint concepts.

"Afternoon Ballet" is about the ballet across the street at Lincoln Center in NY - as much as it is about the ballet of humanity on this street corner.

"Being in the Rain" explores points of view.

"Sometimes Just Pretzels and Beer" is a mouth-watering representation of simple elegance.

I have always considered myself a philosopher who paints. Relying heavily on the techniques of the Old Masters, I choose subjects that embody truths, often humorously - sometimes surrealistically. The joy for me is in creating beautiful paintings that spur thoughtful consideration. I love people, feel connected to the world and spend my days sharing my unique vision of it through paintings. In my mid-sixties, I cannot escape the feeling of just beginning.
