" To the pure in heart, all things are made pure."
I graduated from New England School of Art where I became assistant Figure
Drawing instructor during my last year there. I went on to study Portraiture under Copley Master, Bob Cormier. I was a Figure drawing instructor at Boston Architectural Center for 5 years. My still life oil paintings have sold in several galleries across the state and I exhibited in galleries across the country. I was a Watertown Art Association member for several years and took best of show 3 years in a row at which point I was labeled a master and discontinued competing. I was also a Copley Society member for several years. I presently take on occasional portrait commissions and give private drawing and painting instructions.
