I am a free-lance artist working in watercolor, oil, acrylic, pastel and charcoal, teaching in those media’s. I am a muralist, faux expert and paint on canvas, wood, linen, tiles, marble, glass and ceramics. I teach privately and publicly. I graduated from Adelphi University with and a Business of Finance degree and 30 credits towards a Master’s degree in Business Administration. Adelphi University awarded me a two-year life learning degree in the Fine Arts. I have studied under 4 artists over 30 years, 3-7 years each.
I enjoy photography and the computer, traveling, biking, swimming and boating. Through the 1990-2012, I created animations, company logos and advertisements using Paint Shop Pro or Adobe Photoshop. I am in 3-4 art shows per year. I love painting and hope I am still painting another 30 years! I find challenges the best way to learn so you will find a broad variety of subjects and styles. Now I am heavily involved in overseeing an art gallery at Two Rivers Country Club in Williamsburg, VA, that keeps me very busy.
I started my first oil painting at the age of 4 and only wish I had it today! I started art lessons in high school with the Roslyn School of Painting with Charlie Pasqualina and never could get enough art! I believe it is important to learn and experiment with every media and technique available in the art world one has time for!
Good Luck in your endeavors in art, keep painting, keep looking, listen to your surroundings to get the true feeling, don’t give up painting, don’t listen to harsh critics and most of all paint what you love…those will be your best! If you want a critique would be glad to help you!
Thanks for stopping here! Have a great day!
