I lived in New York City for 23 years. I worked in the deadline-oriented, fast pace of The New York Daily News as a staff artist. I am still painting scenes of the city even though I just live just outside of it now. I am intrigued by the city's unique people, perspectives and tempo. There is no other place quite like it.
