The effects of light on color and form are the main inspiration for my paintings. Having grown up in New York, I particularly enjoy the city's interplay of light and architecture. In addition to painting cityscapes, some of my favorite plein air subjects can be found in Central Park, along the banks of the Hudson River, and in Cape Cod. Several of the artists I admire most are Monet, Pissarro and Corot, all of whom achieve beautiful atmospheric light effects and colors that are rich but not strident.
I have shown my oil paintings in national exhibitions as well as in galleries in Manhattan, New Jersey and Cape Cod. Over the years, I've studied paintings and drawing at the Art Students League and the National Academy School of Fine Arts, both in New York City. I've also enjoyed workshops at the Woodstock School of Art.
