Upon retiring in 2013, I found myself looking for a new interest. A friend suggested that I consider painting. I have always enjoyed crafting and creativity and decided that I would give oil painting a try.

My first lessons were adult education classes with Marla Mencher at Commack High School.  I got off to a good start thanks to Marla's instruction. I have grown to love both the serentity and challenge painting brings to me.
