Artists Statement

For the last two years I have been painting urban scenes, with and without figures. Many of the works have been challenging but for the most part, very enjoyable to paint.

          The collection explores the many perspectives the city so readily offers. Different seasons, interiors, and day and night pieces are included. Notable locations and landmarks are also represented.

          I chose to do an exhibit of all New York City paintings for several reasons. Originally from the New York area, I was a commuter attending the Art Students League when I was very young. Thereafter,  I worked in the Art Department of a greeting card company in Manhattan. Whenever I have the opportunity to return to the city, its spirit always energizes me. I am reminded of the great diversity of our American culture. Within the city , there  are differing perspectives and landscapes that provide never-ending subjects to translate to canvas. My appreciation for the gallery that is New York City is unlimited.
