I have been doing art since childhood with extensive training in a classical representational approach including a BFA from Boston University. A few years ago I was lucky enough to run into the talented and energetic owner of the Beresford Gallery. She has made it possible for me to make a living with my representational oils. I hope someday to attract the same intrest in my expressionistic work.
