My Bio ILLUSTRATION 1976-1996
During these years Myron created hundreds of illustrations for magazines, books, greeting cards, university sports programs, and advertising accounts.

TEACHING 1985-2013
Myron taught drawing, painting and illustration in the Communication Art and Design department at the Alexandria Technical and Community College.

Myron paints commissioned portraits in his studio or in the client’s home and has done many public portrait demonstrations. He has studied portrait painting with these excellent artists: Pat Jerde, Richard Whitney, Casey Baugh, Bonita Roberts, and John Howard Sanden. I am grateful for the unique and personal influence each of these artists have had on my thinking and my skills as an artist.

I am planning a new series of paintings including landscapes, still life and figurative works to develop a looser style of painting in oil.
