Since childhood, I have felt a deep love for the natural environment. I grew up in a city, but with magnificent parks barely a stone's throw away. I have always felt the need to express the beauty around me through drawing and painting. My studies under M. John Angel and the Academy of Realist Art awakened in me a great love for the Old Masters, and particularly the work of 19th and early 20th Century painters including Corot, Bouguereau, Church, Homer, Inness, Eakins, Shishkin, Sargent, and Annigoni, to name a few. In my landscape work I seek to transport the viewer to another place and time. To excite the imagination; to evoke memories and associations, and a love of fantasy and beauty.
