me.jpg



I work in oils, acrylic, and watercolor.  I've studied at the Art Students' League (with portrait artist/author David Leffel);  the New York Academy of Art;  the National Academy of Design School of Art, NYC;  and with abstract artist Ruth Klein.   I also studied Chinese painting for two years at the China Institute, NYC.

I grew up in England, where I received my early art training.

My first love is portraiture, and I've received and executed many commission portraits, usually in oils.  But lately, I have shifted my concentration to water-color, particularly landscapes.
