Here you can view several selections of Art
Media I have chosen to express myself. Each one offered
a challenge & the use of a learned skill, a sensitive
eye for design, composition and color that pleased me. My
art and photography work is part of many collections and
has been accepted in many shows & exhibitions over the
years. I have shown my Artwork three times at Lincoln Center's
Cork Gallery in NYC.
... My Background
Studies & workshops with several prominent
artists have provided an opportunity to develop skills in
various media. Gail Op was responsible for a deep interest
in oriental painting and Sumie, Claude Ponsot & Robert
Carter have helped me hone skills in charcoal rendering
and drawing, Edgar Whitney, Eloise Gardiner and Robert E.
Wood taught me techniques of watercolor, Jeff Webb and Jo
Hing Lo inspired an interest in pastel portraiture. Calligraphy
became an obsession after joining a local group of scribes
and attending several workshops. I became obsessed with
the many facets of it. An interest in photography lead me
to take a course in photographing Artwork. A service resulted
photographing artists work. I also used my camera to record
photos that inspired paintings or helped in the process.
Recently, digital photography has opened new horizons for
me. This new field, with the help of computer software,
virtually gives one all the tools necessary to manipulate
and be creative with photos.
I'm a fine artist, calligrapher, graphic
Photography is a favorite media. I rely on
photos for inspiration and for recording my, and other artists,
work. You are welcome to view my other albums containing
fine art work and graphics.
