EDUCATION: I received my formal art training at the Harris School of Advertising Art, where I completed 4 years of intensive fine art and graphic design instruction. COMMERCIAL ART CAREER: I spent the major part of my career as a commercial artist in New York City, working on staff for major book publishers as graphic designer, illustrator, and art director. My commercial work has appeared on covers, as well as the interiors of numerous publications. FINE ART CAREER: Even while employed as a commercial artist, I have been painting, exhibiting, and selling my work for most of my adult life. I have had several one man shows in New York City, as well as participated in group shows throughout the US, and have received numerous awards for my work. My paintings are part of corporate and private collections in the US and Europe. In recent years I have stopped accepting commercial work to devote all my time to my fine art career. I currently reside on Cape Cod, MA, with my wife, who is also an artist.
Nature is my inspiration. I like to focus not only on the obvious panoramic drama of a scene, but also on the often missed beauty of the every day landscape.
