Able is currently an artist in residence at Jump into the Light in Manhattan’s Lower East Side. While VR painting technology is a new cutting edge media, Able has been working with oil on linen for over twenty years. A working portrait artist by the age of 14, Able’s earliest work focused on realism in the renaissance masters oil technique.
