The Artist's Blog

I was born in Detroit, Michigan in 1946. I was the son of an architectural draftsman, and my mother was a very competent artist. I was influenced by my father's work and the images and the romance of the city, especially the city in winter.

I came to the visual arts through music. I am a classically trained musician and I attended the Eastman School of Music and the University of Southern California Thornton School of Music.

I began painting in 1981 at the age of 35 and decided to paint exclusively in watercolor in 1984. I began to sell my work in galleries in 1985.
