I started drawing and painting at a very young age. After graduating from college with a BA in Fine Art, I continued my art studies in NYC at the Art Students League and the National Academy of Art. I've taken plein air workshops in France, Cape Cod, Massachussets and Laguna Beach, California.
I spent many years as a courtroom artist covering famous trials for major television networks. Even during my years of being a courtroom artist I was always working with speed to try to capture a moment in time. Today I continue with this challenge outdoors. Light is fleeting, nature is ever changing and weather can be unforgiving.
Working outdoors in NYC presents a unique set of challenges for a plein air painter. There are always people around- both interesting and interested. It's important to remain focused. This vibrant city provides a never ending supply of exciting subject matter to paint.
