Painting outdoors with its ever changing conditions is my passion. I see my paintings as a testament to light. Capturing the underlying mood and telling the story based on subtle nuances of the scenery is my source of inspiration. Achieving limited brushwork preserving transparency and vibrancy of watercolor with color integrity of the painting as a whole is an ultimate goal in my paintings. Urban landscapes play a large part in my paintings as I was born and raised in the city. With its complex and vibrant atmosphere cities and towns hold vast amount of venues for me to explore and develop.
I have been teaching drawing and watercolor painting classes regularly in Renaissance School of Art in Sarasota for 5 years. Before that I was teaching individual students on a private basis. Currently I am invited to teach various workshops for different art societies and private group of painters across the country, to judge the shows and competitions, and to do demonstrations of my techniques.
