I am a lifelong artist, and have a wide range of areas of expertise. I work with many different media, and can combine if it is called for. My work can be realistic or abstract, camera ready or otherwise, as need dictates. I have worked with different computer programs, and also am proficient with a camera. I have shown my work extensively, and am never without a pen, pencil or brush in my hand. Medical illustrations or flights of fancy, I go there. I also speak a number of different languages, and can help in that area, if needed. I have worked with newspapers, the government( as a translator), a teacher( and wrote a textbook and other materials) and as a private instructor in Art, Russian and German.
