I have enjoyed drawing and painting for as long as I can remember. For most of my professional career I worked with the elderly. I found the human face to be a fascinating and beautiful landscape of lines, shapes and expressions. It can set a mood and tell the story of a life time, or of a single moment. I began drawing realistic pencil portraits about 15 years ago. I work from photos as subjects are not interested in sitting for as long as I need, and I like to have spontaneous expressions. My commissioned portraits are of people of all ages (and a few dogs) and are in homes from New York to Florida.
Since moving from New Jersey to the Catskills five years ago, I have enjoyed having more time to do art. My participation in the East Branch Delaware River Plein Air Painters group has renewed my interest in doing “real” landscape drawing in the beautiful Catskill Mountains.
