|Formal training: Cleveland School of Art|
Artist Statements of Artistic Influences:
From the French school - Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, Georges Seurat and Camille Pissarro: the way they use light and color impressed me.
From the English school - John Constable: his use of color and light in landscapes opened a new window to me.
As far as American artists, I especially liked George Bellows. When I was kid I was impressed with his piece "stag et sharkies". The action and the strength of the painting sang to me. I also admire John Singer Sargent.
