"My oil paintings are attempts at capturing atmosphere, form and motion. Subject matter can range from landscape to cityscape to figurative imagination pieces. I use a limited palette with only a warm and cool side of primaries plus zinc white. This means I have to mix every color creating a palette and color harmony unique to my work. I work both in studio and outdoors in some extreme weather conditions all the while staying focused on form, atmosphere and motion. I studied at the Art Students League Manhattan under the painter Daniel Dickerson. He was instrumental in my development as an artist. My studies in collage during those days paved the way for a painting style that is focused on planes of color and not on detail. For me, a piece of art should have multiple interpretations and a life of it's own.

I travel the country from spring through fall doing some of the finest juried art fairs".
