This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is from the artist:

I was born 1929 in New York. I have been a working artist all of my life. My paintings are done in both acrylic and oil. My palette is very heavy, using a great deal of texture. I'm an abstractionist using nature as my subject matter.

Throughout my life I've exhibited in hundreds of galleries, and did commercial work on covers of magazines including Pictures On Exhibition, Southwest Art. etc.

My work has been exhibited in group shows at the Brooklyn Museum, Hartford Museum, and Syracuse College Museum.

I started my art career on the boardwalk of Atlantic City doing charcoal portraits at $1.00 a piece( when a dollar was worth a dollar). I then did landscapes because that is what I could sell, and landscapes were very popular during the 50. I also painted clowns, because this was the way I could pay for my supplies.

I started to paint abstractions around the 1960s and found this to be my calling. I have been painting abstract work to this date and I hope for many more years.

I paint every day now but at a slower pace. I take a lot of pleasure in seeing my paintings on several TV shows in the background sets.
