I am a painter and educator who divides his time between Manhattan and my Westport, CT studio. A career as an illustrator and designer for books, films, television, and Broadway musicals has evolved into that of a painter. I am known for  insightful portraits, and offer classes at my studio. I am also on the faculty of the Silvermine School of Art. I  was awarded an Art Students League of New York scholarship to study at the School of Visual Arts in New York City.

I paint in oils in a traditional renaissance manner to give my subjects as much richness as possible. This is an indirect method, building up a monochrome grisaille underpainting over which I gradually add color with both transparent glazes and full bodied color. This is a time consuming process. I enjoy the unique qualities it gives. It offers very delicate tonal variations impossible with other painting methods.
