Paintings Gallery

The pastel paintings are original, one-of-a-kind works of art on acid  free  paper. The figurative pastels  are all based on life drawings. The dance pastels come from sketches that I have drawn in different dance studios. Their brilliant colors are influenced by my earliest love of impressionism.In particular the artists Claude Monet, Edgar Degas  and the contemporary painter Wolf Kahn. The sensuality of the figures suggests the colors I choose. The medium itself presents a vibrancy unlike any other, as well as a freshness and spontaneity.

The ink and watercolor paintings are also images of dancers and present a bold graphic colors and sharp lines. These works begin as a outlined drawing in my sketch books and are then enlarged to the proper size paper and meticulously finished with fine brushes and pen.

We do ship framed paintings with glass however they require special boxes designed for this purpose.
