Artist Statement

I am a passionate Contemporary Classical Realist painter living in Brooklyn NY. An avid admirer of the great Spanish Masters from a very early age I’ve studied many years perfecting my hand in the Classical style with accomplished contemporary works in still life, landscapes, and figures.

I’m delighted to share my paintings of real life environments and subjects that are at times quite delicate and fleeting in nature and capture their beauty in that moment for a lifetime.
