I paint for the love of painting. It is my life and my livelihood. My first love is portraiture.
I was trained in New York. First at the Art Students League and, later, at the New York Academy of Art. It was in the early, formative years of NYAA that I met and studied under Francis Cunningham who continued the teachings of his mentor Edwin Dickinson, 1891-1978, who had a major influence on the Abstract Expressionists and subsequent development of American art.
Dickenson was mentored by Charles Hawthorne (1872 - 1930) who, in turn, studied under William Merritt Chase.
That is my lineage and it is the teachings of my predecessors that I am endeavoring to pass onto you with PORTRAIT PAINTER MAGAZINE.
