* I am pleased to announce that I am having a solo show at the Congregation Beth Or in Maple Glen PA, starting February 10, 2023, and ending April 10, 2023, in the beautiful Olitzky Gallery. Open Monday thru Fridays from 9 - 4. Call me an arrange a time to walk through together.
Retired from business life since 2005, I now spend most of my time drawing, painting, and doing pastels. I have devoted these last years to honing my skills and learning...always learning.
My art is mostly realistic/impressionistic and reflects the natural world. I paint from my heart and from memories accrued from my many years of life's experiences. I take inspiration from the natural world, IE., the dog park or my wonderful vacations in New England and Maine with its mountains, lakes, amazing coastline, islands, and stunning scenery. Also, I take inspiration from the lovely paths I walk near my home and the quiet beauty that is the rolling hills of Pennsylvania and beauty in the Philadelphia region, in which I live.
Although mostly untrained, I strive for excellence in all that I do. My latest commissions were inspired from an African Safari and a several portraits of beloved pets.
Please feel free to contact me: 267-474-5789 or email@example.com for further information. Also, please leave me a message to avoid being deleted as a scam call. Such are the times we live in.
