"I was inspired to become an artist in my early years of employment at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. While wandering the great halls of the Metropolitan I was immensely intrigued by the great masters and the style of realism. Therefore, I sought my education in the masters tradition of academic realism. The masters have a strong impact on my work but I adhere to expressing and developing my own style. My strong points have always been the portrait and figure but since retiring have been able to focus more on still life and plein air landscape painting as well. Whether working in my studio, in sketch groups or outdoors, I love being able to dedicate each and every day to the ‘art of creating’."
