Art has always been part of my life. Primarily a colored pencil artist, I recently journeyed into the world of East Asian Water-ink painting. I enjoy the contrast between the very slow process of creating a colored pencil painting layer upon layer, and the spontaneity of brush painting, where I try to convey the essence of a subject by using minimal strokes of ink and watercolor.
An award winning artist, my work is featured in the books, CP Treasures, Volumes II & III; 2013 Peace Project Book; CP Hidden Treasures; Icarus Art Spring 2015 Newsletter and the Colored Pencil Society of America's to The Point magazine (Jan. 2016, June 2015, Jan. 2014). I am a contributing artist in the book, Masterful Color by Arlene Steinberg. My artwork has been shown in solo gallery exhibits, juried shows and group exhibitions. My original paintings and giclees are in corporate and private collections throughout the United States.
