I have been painting professionally since is was 18. My first job was painting rock posters for Bill Graham at the Fillmore West. After graduating from the University of California Santa Barbara I dedicated my next 36 years to painting murals in California, Nevada, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, New Jersey and New York. In 2008, I reproduced a mural (Ellis Island-the Lost Mural). The original hung at Ellis Island until it was destroyed in 1953. The mural plus35 portraits of famous immigrants has been touring the U.S.
