I am a Fine Artist working and living in Portland, Oregon. I consider myself as Contemporary Realistic Painter. My Artwork tends to more detailed at results of being an Architect for over 40 years.
Since 1998 I studied painting and dra wing and traveled widely. These are painting studies & workshops: Arne Westerman, Susan McKenna, Barbara Nechis, Xhaoging Zhu, Ryan Wurmser, Nelson Shanks at Studio Incamminati in Philadelphia Geoffrey Laurence & Mitchell Albala at Gage Academy in Seattle, Elio Camache, Kathryn Dunphy, Terry Miura & Kim English.
My passion is painting the human figure. I have spent the last twenty years focusing my energy on portraits, figurative paintings in winter and landscapes during the summer. I treat my landscapes more like portraits. My perceptions are realistic studies.
