FischerJV"Painting should be as light as breath on glass."

Representational (well, mostly) artist located in Jersey City.

Self taught, I started painting at the age of 7, first exhibiting my work in the hallway of my elementary school (everyone was impressed that I knew the sky met the earth at some point). Since then I have gone through several 'periods' focusing on 'junk art' (sculptures made from found objects), to pastel and watercolor still life, to representational paintings of everyday life and copies of masterworks, to experimental imagery. I continue to do all of these disciplines as well as leaded glass, mosaics, furniture design and construction, garden design, interior design. Actually, I do what I want when the muse strikes me. I firmly believe that, if another human being can do it, so can I.
