The bulk of my classical training took place at the Aegean Center for the Arts in Paros, Greece. Between 2007 and 2009, I had the great fortune to study with John and Jane Pack as well as Jeffrey and Liz Carson. It was on this remote Greek island that I became immersed in Classical Greek thought and expression.
When I returned to the states I still wanted to improve my drawing skills. I attended classes at Grand Central Academy, then in midtown Manhattan. Although not a full time student, I took classes at night and on weekends. At GCA I studied from Bargue plates, in the cast hall and from the figure. Here are a few pieces made during this time.
