Welcome to my website. I am a classically trained realist painter, living in New York City. During the first ten years after art school, I focused on the traditional genres of still life, portraiture and landscapes. The vast majority of my work was commissioned and sold privately.

Over the last five years, I have shifted to more imaginative, narrative work inspired stylistically by fine artists such as Degas and Klimt, along with countless European masters from the Renaissance and religious imagery from the painters of the Neo-Classical to Post-Impressionist era.  I am also influenced by Buddhist ideas, Greek mythology and the Indian chakra system. In the years to come, I hope I can continue to mine my inner life for painting ideas.
