I really enjoyed your gallery. I want to ask you where you have studied. Your work reminds me of my favorite living Master, David Leffel. I've been away from the easel for many years but ready to get back to it again. Your work is inspirational. Thank you.

Leffel is awesome. Yes indeed I had the rare opportunity to take a workshop from him! But I learned to paint at the Schuler School in baltimore, they are the best: www.schulerschool.com/
