My main love has always been painting all forms of life. I began drawing and painting in the 80s while I was working in the financial sector on Wall Street. Long days behind a desk and in front of a computer! I still remember the day my artist friend encouraged me to go to an art class with her in the evenings. It was a life drawing class at 'Joe's Place' in Soho. On my first night there I was still in my grey pin striped suit and exhausted after 8 hours of drudgery. Standing at an easel with paper and charcoal, I was in awe of the beauty of the model before me, and suddenly plugged in to a whole new source of energy. The beauty of the human form was and still is infinitely mysterious. I moved to London in the 90s and began to focus on portraiture. While there I was blessed with a beautiful daughter. She became a focused ballet dancer which allowed me to spend many happy hours at her ballet studio, drawing and painting what I observed there. In 2002 I relocated to Vancouver, Washington State, and now concentrate on commissioned portraits.
