In the 2007 East Hampton Sand Castle Contest
I was classically trained in figure drawing and painting.
I was also trained in design & Illustration. The figure is still
a large part of my work. I find it a challenge to try and capture
the beauty of the human form in all its complexities and moods.
I work in a variety of mediums including oils watercolors & acrylic
I use a painterly approach with a strong use of color. I paint
what I feel about what I see. I like my paintings to have a sense
of movement to have a life of there own. I paint what moves me, the world around me. Since moving to the east end of long Island the world I paint are the beaches and local landscapes. My goal is to paint the ordinary and make it extraordinary.
