I live in Fort Lauderdale, FL where I create drawings, paintings, sculptures, and ceramics. My travels to France, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Egypt, Israel, India, Africa, China, Central and South America continue to give me a profound respect for ancient art and antiquity. As a result, classical qualities and influences are a natural outgrowth in my contemporary classical organic artwork. I have been involved in the local Fort Lauderdale Art Community for over 40 years. I facilitated life drawing, painting & sculpture workshops in Fort Lauderdale for most of these years. Currently, I am dedicated to creating public sculptures of an historic significance in the Fort Lauderdale area. Additionally, I am passionate about plein air paintings in historic locations such as the Old Fort Lauderdale Village in Himmarshee & New River Court Historic District, Bonnet House Museum & Gardens, Old Floresta Historic Neighborhood in Boca Raton and Banker’s Row in Delray Beach.
My plein air paintings are a representation of the spirit of the actual scenes of landscapes and historical buildings in the local community. I have studied plein air painting in Italy, France, Ecuador and the USA. “Creating works of art from life and nature is the inspiration behind capturing the historical narrative that is preserved in my plein air paintings.”
