I have been creating art in a variety of media all my life starting at around age 15. I graduated from commercial art in 1971. At age 23 I became a billboard painter and silkscreen artist while continuing my work in fine art. My interest in art opened a window to the past on the subject of art history that has fascinated me through my whole life. The works of Rodin, Renoir,Matisse, Picasso,Moore, Brancuse, Modigliane, Giacometti etc have made a huge impression. The romantic in me wished that I had been born at this special time and been able to have worked in the shadows of these greats. I do feel my work reflects on this era.
