I was born in Brooklyn N.Y. January 1966.
The first piece of artwork I ever sold was at age 11. A comic book mural for a store wall.
I have not stopped producing artwork since then, that was thirty seven years ago.
I picked up my first camera at age 14.
I excelled at art in High School which led me to major in art history and art. I trained formally at the illustrious Art Students League of New York.
In 1985 I began a full time career as a freelance artist for Marvel Comics and D.C. Comics. This is not only where I perfected my craft, but also where I learned discipline, keeping deadlines, working under great pressure and how to grow creatively. Being in the comic book industry for eighteen years has taught me the dramatic cinema style which lends itself to my other areas of art, painting, photographic or otherwise.
In 2001 I was involved in a severe car accident. As a result, I am no longer able to draw comic books. So I started to paint in Oils and Watercolors full time.
I have been showing at all the finer galleries all across the United States, including the Chelsea area in Manhattan N.Y. And San Francisco CA. I am not locked into one particular style or media...... I can pick up Oils, or Watercolors, Clay or the camera, pencils or dyes and perform works in each. Within each form I am able to perform a multitude of different styles or when needed , stick to one......
Art is what I love, it is all I know......
