Welcome to The Studio - Fine Art Gallery.
Dear Friends & Neighbors, old and new!
I am glad & proud to be back in the neighborhood where I started my career. It is inspiring to continue my work at the new studio, which stands next to the building that I designed. The exterior facade styling, as well as some "hands on" summer apprenticeship at various steps of construction was my first professional, "paid project" back in 1990, while I was still an art student.
Since 2003, I chose to make this neighborhood my home and had an honor of being a local "South Brooklyn" artist, successfully working out of my studio on Brighton Beach for many years... Sadly, my artwork was temporarily interrupted by Sandy, but gladly fate reunited me with my "roots" here in Manhattan Beach - my "New-Old" home!!
Feel free to ask me about my Services in art & design, art education classes, interior design, fine art paintings, drawings, custom art framing & restoration and art collecting by calling 347.460.8278.
This studio will be a small but creative and inspiring part of the story of how South Brooklyn Rebuilds!!!
