Portfolio > Paintings, Portraits, and Prints

Specializing in portraits, I also draw from foreign and American motifs from nature, and the human form for my vividly designed landscapes, figure paintings, and glass art. I owe my painting style to a love for "Impressionism". I find that period most fascinating, especially the use of broken and bright color. When I paint, I like to remember Monet's magnificent use of color as well as his brilliant technique for demonstrating light. I think of Edgar Degas and Mary Cassatt for their prolific use of pastel painting. They are the inspiration that led me to the medium of pastel. This rich background has also been a springboard for developing my unique, Italian inspired, line of three dimensional painted and gilded glass art home décor and gilded jewelry designs.
