I began painting professionally in Brooklyn NY, in 1991. I began my career painting portraits, establishing commissions in the USA ,and France. During the mid 90's I started a series of still life and figurative paintings known as Gothic Paintings, which were actually a few steps ahead of what is now a major trend. They were purchased by collectors in NYC and Paris France. If we fast forward a bit, I am now doing neosurrealist works in paint, which I consider classical paintings as well as abstractions. Portraits remain in my work lineup as well.
