About the Artist
After a lengthy career in communications and graphic design, I return to my first passion, fine art. Creative pursuits such as oil painting and mixed media pieces, though never abandoned entirely, have long taken back seat to the art of making a living. Reclaiming them is rewarding and fun.
These days I divide my time between downstate and upstate NY, where my work is occasionally exhibited and sold.
