“I have been painting since 1967. My first teacher was my father, William P. Folchi, who taught me the basics, such as anatomy, the technical skills of mixing and applying paint, and the ability to paint from life in the open air. He brought me to all the finest museums and galleries in the city, where I was introduced to my next set of teachers, the old masters and the contemporary innovators. My third major instructor was my professor, Theo Stavropoulos, an extraordinary Greek artist, whose work is too little known and recognized today. With this foundation, I constructed my own path on the artistic journey.

When someone asks me what I paint, they are frequently surprised by my response, “everything.” More specifically, I am an artist in the realist tradition, but my subjects have long ago crossed all boundaries, from figurative street scenes, to still life, to landscapes and clouds to my most recent works, paintings of the pavement that we walk upon each day and do not notice.

But there is a consistency to the subjects. All are encountered in our everyday existence, whether they are the fire escapes and water towers of the urban scene, the markings on the sidewalk, or the majestic trees that line the lakes of the Northeast.

I earlier said that I am on an artistic journey, one of exploration. But there is no final destination, or “find” at the end of the journey. There is only discovery along the way. Looking at my work, I hope the viewer will make the discoveries with me.”
