My art work is my life and what I love doing. Sometimes I work/play on my art 24 hours a day.
I started out as a technician working for Kodak when I was 21 years old. Went to night school while I worked at Kodak and got my BS in Chemistry. Left Kodak at 29 because I wanted to become an artist. Took many painting classes and at 35 and went back to school to get my MFA in painting.
I have been showing my artwork for more than 40 years now.
About 8 years ago I acquired the studio next to my studio and remodeled into my own gallery, this freed me up to be able to make any kind of art that I can imagine.
I see my art as a journey, a learning experience, a challenge to myself of something that want to learn more about.
Right now I am working on an alphabet of 20 letters that when completed will become an autobiographical book. Each letter of the alphabet is a chapter of this book and a themed art installation. Samples of my previous exhibits are: “A is for Art”, “F is for Fantasy”, “M is for Mother”, “P is for Places”. “W is for WordPainting.”
Upcoming exhibits that I already started working on are: “G is for Gourmet” in 2016, “Destiny” a book installation and a collaboration with Martha Schermerhorn in 2017, “D is for DNA” in 2021, “H is for Henry” A screenplay/installation for a movie about my grandfather in 2023.
