Many thanks to the collector who recently purchased prints of my Mudra paintings!
Would love to hear sometime how you are enjoying your new prints.
I love the mystery and the beauty of all life forms. Look here for original paintings in oil and pastel - portraits, ballet dancers, divine figures that exude peace and tranquility. I practice yoga on a regular basis and strive for the equanimity that this discipline cultivates. I am fascinated with the beauty and power of mudras and love the hands as a subject for painting.
I have been drawing and painting ever since I can remember. Drawing was a constant source of delight for me as a child, and a subject for exploration in my teens.
I worked on Wall Street in my early twenties, immersed in business pursuits. In my late twenties, an artist friend challenged me to reconnect with my artistic side. The experience was exhilarating. I began to leave the office early to go directly to life drawing sessions in Soho, looking slightly out of place in my grey pin stripe business suit. I also took classes at the Art Students League, and devoted all spare time to my passion. I also drew inspiration from the world class art collections in New York.
From New York, I moved to London, taking advantage of the rich culture there to continue my study of art. I studied with Michael Chaitow concentrating on objective drawing skills and at the same time I began to work in a more intuitive way. I was able to travel extensively throughout Europe and study the work of the masters. I studied landscape painting in France and portraiture while living in London. I began painting portraits by commission in 2002, while still living in London.
I am currently residing in Vancouver Washington where I work from my home studio.
