Drawing and painting the human figure has been my greatest interest over and above any other subject matter.  I consider my work to be Romantic Realism because I seek, above all else, individuality expressed through subjective emotions.  I continue to sing my own song with my whole heart.  Painting something that may connect with someone in some way is my biggest reward for doing what I love to do.    
I am basically self-taught in the pastel medium.  My formal education includes oil painting at the Center for Creative Studies in Detroit, Michigan, watercolor classes at Monroe Community College and life drawing classes at Henry Ford College.  I continue to study the Masters in all mediums through the numerous books I have accumulated over the years.  Some of my favorite artists are John Singer Sargent, Edgar Degas, Mary Cassatt, Joaquin Sorolla, Andres Zorn, and Vincent Van Gogh.
