Dick Metzner has been drawing all his life. An award-winning architect, he began creating pen-and-ink drawings over twenty years ago. His drawings depict the ordinary themes of everyday life in the home. His drawings are done directly with pen-and-ink without sketching beforehand with pencil. He also enjoys landscape drawing, especially at his favorite spot, Accabonac Harbor on eastern Long Island.
Metzner’s pen-and-ink artwork hangs in many area homes. His drawings have been featured in group shows and his work hung for several years at Modern Classics in Rye, New York. Dick is available to draw pen-and-ink drawings such as those in his exhibit for your home.
