Initially painted from photographs in National Geographic magazine, the Impressionist sryle of painting was my passion at the time.
Immersion into Early Modernism, following Cezanne, Monet, Degas... Abundant bright colors, conceptualized flowing figures.

Stretching the imagination after a family trip to New York and visiting the Museum of Modern Art.

Refinement - Classic Sculptures
Studies of Matisse and Rodin works plus an original titled "Arched Figure." These remain some of my most treasured pieces.
