I am a "later in life" emerging artist. I am also in the Real Estate business, and have been for 30 years. Recently I stepped away for broker management positions for the past 20 years and the RE Franchise Corporate world to open my own small brokerage and make more time for painting. My preferred mediums are acrylics and oils. I was a student of Julia Peters for the last 8+ years and now that she was closed her studio, have started an "art club" that meets weekly at my home studio for fun and collaboration.
