I was a protégé of Frank Covino B.S.,M.S., A.T.E., he attended the prestigious Pratt Art Institute where he studied and received his degrees. He is a Master Painter, Executive Portraitist and the Executive Director of Frank Covino Academy of Art, where I studied for eight years and I earned the titles of Executive Portraitist, Master of the Masters and Professional Master Copyist. I studied the Classical Academic methods and techniques of the Old Masters along with their present day usages, and apply them to my official portraits, corporate portraits, executive portraits, museum replicas and family portraits. I have also studied anatomy, perspective, composition and color theory, tonal values along with figurative, nude figure, chiaroscuro, landscape and art history in order to produce fine art.
All of these skills endeavors me to produce and capture my patron in a superb museum quality official portrait, corporate portrait, executive portrait, and family portrait that exhibits the intellect, human spirit, character and personality which will be a legacy for my patron for generations to come. If you are looking for a corporate portrait, executive portrait, official portrait, museum replica and/or family portrait to commission and you are interested in a classical portrait that will stand the test and taste of the times, I am the portrait artist for you.
All commissions will be painted with professional paint and resin medium over thick marble inclusive gesso ground on Belgian linen canvas and protected with professional quality Damar varnish, consistent with museum conservator tradition. I believe in quality not quantity.
