I am self taught. I have been doing representational work for 60 years. I have won numerous prizes in numerous juried shows over the years. Most recently I have had several works accepted in the Salmagundi Club in NYC. I won third prize at the Roberson Regional Show in 2021. I do portraits on commission. If you are interested in purchasing a painting or commissioning me to do some work, I can be contacted at 607 372 5877. You can text or call. That is my cell phone number. I can ship a painting to you either framed , or unframed. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org .
