My specialty is participating in outdoor art shows with much success. I consider this to be my major business. I've been priviledged to be invited every year to be the Demo Artist at the Outdoor Gallery North Show in Setauket, NY and the Suffolk County Fair. I also am invited to do demo shows at private parties, hospitals, nursing homes, restaurants and art organizations.
I draw charcoal portraits on the spot and for 15 years I've been commissioned to paint portraits in oil and pastel.
