I am a classically trained realist painter, living in New York City.   For years,  I focused on the traditional genres of still life, portraiture and landscapes, the  majority of which was commissioned and sold privately.

In recent years,  I have shifted to more imaginative, narrative work, inspired stylistically by artists such as Degas and Klimt, along with countless European masters from the Renaissance to the present day.  Philosophically, I am  influenced by animism, mythology of many traditions,  and human ideals that have formulated over millenia.
