about​ GENE

 Amagansett, NY resident Gene's carefully observed renderings of beaches, cityscapes, homes and gardens capture the essence of his subjects and makes them special to artists and viewers alike. He creates plein air landscapes as well as portraits of homes and gardens in watercolor, ink and pencil.

His work varies from delicate and subdued to lush and vivacious.

In addition to making art for his own pleasure and exhibition, Gene creates home and garden portraits by commission under the name 'HomeScapes",  preserving locations that are meaningful to clients. Gene also donates his talent to organizations, including

The Peconic Land Trust, Group for the East End, East End Hospice, RSVP and LVIS.
