My undergraduate degree is from the University of Pennsylvania. And I’m the only artist (that I know of) with an LL.M. in Taxation from New York University. But please don’t ask me any tricky questions about taxation of corporate mergers; I forgot everything I learned.
I studied oil painting at the Scottsdale Artists’ School in Scottsdale, Arizona. I also studied at the Corcoran School of Arts & Design in Washington, DC. I started doing landscape paintings in 2008. I think my interest in landscape was a reaction to living in the concrete jungle of Manhattan. Being so deprived of nature, I learned to really appreciate it and admire it whenever I had the chance to see it. And that led to a desire to paint it.
