When you first meet me it quickly becomes apparent that you are dealing with a true original. When asked if I give painting classes I say sure, then proceed to paint a box and say “now paint outside it!” I began my journey on the artist path as a child in N.J. where I started painting at the age of twelve. Years later in Washington D.C. I would expand my interest into works expressing my rich emotional life using oil pastels, while being inspired and influenced by my friend Jacob Kainen who was an American painter and printmaker. Kainen is also known as an art historian, writing books on John Baptist Jackson and the etchings of Canaletto. In addition, Kainen was a collector of German Expressionist art, and he and his second wife, Ruth, donated a collection of this work to the National Gallery of Art in 1985. Today I paint acrylic creations that represent both my response to the world around me and my own inner world. Visit my studio located at 510 US Hwy. 17 South, Surfside Beach.
