In my youth, I began to draw under the influence of my father, who enjoyed drawing, painting, and sculpture.

Upon graduation from the School of Visual Arts, and subsequently returning home from two years in the army, I became an art director and illustrator in the advertising industry. During my thirty-five year career in advertising, I continued to paint and develop my style.

New York is a city in constant flux. The skyline changes frequently with the rise and fall of high rise buildings and the development/renovation of the city. It is an ever changing environment. One can see machinery and construction equipment on any daily walk throughout the city. The motion of the city had a profound effect on my style. Urban Industrial reflects this movement and evokes a feeling that is open to interpretation by those who view my paintings.

I have had the opportunity to exhibit my work in New York City and Scottsdale, Arizona. My style continues to evolve based on my travels and my life in Florida.
