Life makes art and art makes life worth living. I start sketching the minute I awake—no kidding—since the 1950s! It's a beautiful thing, makes me ready to receive whatever comes my way with a touch of style and grace. In portraiture, it's great if you capture the likeness, but if it doesn't reveal the soul of the subject it's just an exercise and not a work of art.
Veteran designer, painter, illustrator, vegan cook (soups my spécialité de la maison!). Special interests include portraiture, watercolor and décor. Fun to work with, very focused and professional attitude but not a prima donna. I was a student at FIT in the 60s, then studied painting and drawing at university and then in atelier-style school in New York. Worked for ions in publishing and advertising. Computer savvy but prefer manual techniques. I draw several hours every day since early childhood.
