My mission is to create unique paintings as well as to build a vibrant art business. I have expanded my name brand in the regional field with feature articles in the Saratoga Living magazine, the Albany Times union, the Schenectady Daily-Gazette, the Post Star, the Greenwich Journal & Salem Press, the Hill Country Observer, the Transcript in Williamstown, Massachusetts, and the Chronicle.
Legend has it that I have been creating art since the time I could first grasp a crayon. My grasp became an issue in kindergarten, leading the school's occupational therapist to attempt to correct the grasp for quite a while in vain. Many years later this man shared that he was glad that his attempts were unsuccessful and that he didn't mess with my artistic abilities!
In my elementary years, I became the go-to guy for creating school program covers, but slowly my clientele base evolved into adult customers seeking commissioned works of art. Over the years, I have worked at making my art more refined and detailed.
I am known for the perspective that I take in my paintings, frequently from a vantage point above the subject. My subjects are as varied as old schoolhouses and country scenes; major cityscapes of Washington, D.C., London, LA, NYC, and Chicago; major landscapes such as Notre Dame and Times Square, as well as scenes from my hometown of Greenwich, NY. My favorite medium is acrylic, resulting in paintings that are vivid and detailed to captivate the viewer's eye.
At 28, I have already spent over a dozen years building my art business. It has taken me on wonderful adventures- exhibiting and getting awards at the Salmagundi Club on 5th Avenue, being honored with a two month plus solo exhibit at the Hyde, being interviewed on the radio by Joe Donahue about my art, being on John Legere's "Slow Cooker Sunday" with millions of followers, meeting well known people, staying overnight in a pent house suite overlooking Bryant Park in NYC courtesy of an art collector, getting several awards in international art magazines, traveling to Switzerland, Italy, Ireland, and France, getting to know and respect the work of many regional artists, and best of all- meeting the many people near and far away who are kind enough to support my art. I would be nowhere without them, I realize. To all of you who have helped me in any way along this fantastic voyage, I thank you for making it possible for this small- town artist to travel this incredible journey.
I will be working to continue to build my art business with the help of my loyal manager, my mom, Claire. My dream is to someday open my own gallery.
