About

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.

PAINTING 1990-PRESENT
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.

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