I’ve been painting in oils since I was 8 years old. It’s what I’ve done for 54 years.
I grew up among artists and musicians and was fortunate enough to have been mentored by Fauvists, Avantgardists, Academicians, Portrait Painters, Modernists, Abstract Expressionists, sculptors and printers.
My Art life began in my earliest years and exposure to all the genres and their practitioners has had a lasting effect on my work.
My appreciation for the artists visual experience is very broad and I like to work in several genres. Each has a different emotional signature both for the artist and the beholder.
