ARTIST'S STATEMENT I started painting seriously in 2003 when I bought a Bed and Breakfast and moved to Cape Cod. Not to say that my 35 year career in NYC as a television producer was all for naught, it taught me a lot about light, contrast, composition, point of view, negative/positive spaces. When I discovered the palette knife I dove into painting large colorful canvases with thick layers of oil paint. Now relocated to coastal Connecticut and working out of Metro Art Studios in Bridgeport I am painting full time and loving it. My work has shifted to architecture and coastal scenes and is evolving to become more abstract.
