My works are primarily from live models. I truly enjoy portrait and figure paintings. I studied art at the Yard School of Art at the Montclair Art Museum, Rockland County College and County College of Morris. My teachers include well-known pastels and portrait artists. My raw models are the impressionists, although it is not my painting style. I love their colors and brushstrokes; admire Van Gogh’s yellows and blues, Degas’ ballerinas and Renoir’s couples and the girls playing piano. Working in a realistic style, my favorite objects are dancers, music players and cozy rooms. Using a variety of mediums on my canvases or papers, I want to document a movement or emotion to create joy and warmth for anyone who loves art.
