CREATING A NEW VISION FOR THE ARTS
Born: 1931 in Mt.Vernon, New York.
Sold my first painting in 1945, and have been painting, exhibiting and selling my work ever since.
Formal Art training: 3 years at the Franklin School of Professional Art.
One year at the National Academy of Fine Art. Both in New York City.
I then spent four years in France
developing, exhibiting and selling
I returned to the US in 1958. In 1959 I moved to Big Sur, California where I lived and worked for many years. I now live nearby on the Monterey Peninsula, painting, exhibiting and selling my work.
My heros are the Folk Artists whose bright, cheerful artworks always say "YES" to life.
People ask me why I paint.
to have fun,
to promote enjoyment,
to sell my work.
What would ART look like in a world
that worked for everyone ?
