My paintings try to capture the mood of a particular scene - and the emotion that it evokes.  It may be the mayhem of Times Square, the tranquillity of a Cape Cod marsh, or the mood expressed by an individual's face.  For me, oil paint is the ideal medium for conveying  that expression.  Its buttery texture can be used for dynamic impasto brushwork that communicates excitement or can be diluted for delicate translucent effects.  I particularly enjoy painting the places that I know intimately: New York City and Cape Cod.  I grew up in the City and it is a source of never-ending inspiration, especially in the interplay of people, light and architecture.  And after decades of Cape Cod summers and painting there en plein air, I've become deeply attached to the magical light and gentle beauty of the Outer Cape landscape.  My artwork ranges from figures, to interiors, cityscapes and landscape, but all reflect the momentary effects of light on color and form.  I especially draw inspiration from Pissarro, Corot and Monet:  all of whom achieved unity of tone with colors that were rich but not strident.
At the Art Students League (where I was awarded a Merit Scholarship), I studied anatomy and drawing with Michael Burban and Costa Vavagiakis, and painting with Gregg Kreutz and Marybeth MacKenzie.  I also pursued art training at the National Academy School with Dan Gheno and Sam Adoquoi.  In addition, I've taken classes with Gary Godbee at the Montclair Museum Yard School of Art and workshops with Christopher Gallego.
I've exhibited my work in many group shows, national exhibitions and galleries in New Jersey and Manhattan.  I am currently represented by Sarah Jessica Fine Arts gallery in Provincetown, MA.
