I have always had a very inquisitive mind, a great sense of adventure and interest in a broad range of things. I always loved to draw and became a fairly accomplished draughtsman by the time I graduated from art school. This has enabled me to do a lot of different things in a fairly proficient and professional manner. I studied with and took workshops from some of the best artists in the country, including Richard Schmid, Harley Brown, David Leffel, Sergei Bongart and Del Gish. I owe a lot to them for their inspiration,knowledge and wise advice. As an Illustrator,I learned to do a lot of things, satisfy my clients and meet deadlines. It was a great training ground to get into the fine arts. I love what I do and it made it much easier to work long and hard to develop my painting skills, concepts and taste. I mostly have been able to concentrate on the process of being the best artist that I can be and that process goes on as long as I live. Having been an Illustrator for 25 years, much of my work with figures and portraits usually tells somewhat of a story. My Plein Air landscape work has enabled me to get more feeling in my work and to paint in more of an impressionistic manner. I am inspired by many of my great artist friends and the great masters of the past such as Nicolai Fechin, Joaquim Sorolla, Anders Zorn, John Singer Sargent, Carl Rungis and many of the great American, French and Russian Impressionists. I think that a great artist, masters the basics of drawing, color and composition and then brings his own influences, interpretation and style to whatever one wishes to achieve. I am very grateful for being able to be on this wonderful journey for most of my life.
