|I began drawing at the age of three and never stopped! I studied art in New York, and won a number of awards and competitions. I was classically trained as a portrait artist, and consider my influences to be the great masters, such as Rembrandt, Sargent and others. My work is in many private collections, and galleries around the world. Favorite subjects include: photorealistic people, dogs, cats, and scenic views, and working from some of my clients' family photos. My painting studio is in New Jersey.
