This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A painter with a wide variety of subject matter supported by extensive travel in the United States and Europe.  A special focus of his painting and lecturing was the Blackfoot Indian tribe in the Canadian Rockies.  He began his art studies as a textile designer at the Lowell Institute in Lowell, Massachusetts.  He had summer jobs in Provincetown, Massachusetts, which brought him in contact with numerous artists, which, in turn, influenced him to become a fine art painter.  He studied in New York at the Artist Artisans and in Boston at the Cowles Art School, and then went to Paris for three years, attending the Academies Julien, Colarossi and Ecole des Beaux Arts.  Among his teachers were Jean-Paul Laurens and Benjamin Constant.  Returning to New York City, he spent the next seven years employed by Mc Clure's Magazine as art manager.

Subsequent to that employment, he was vice-president of an advertising agency representing the Canadian Pacific Railway and Steamship Lines, and in this capacity traveled to the Orient and to the Pacific Northwest among the Blackfeet Indians of Stoney Reserve, which from 1924 became a primary focus of his art expression for the next 25 years.  Ultimately he was admitted as a "Blood Brother" and given the name of O-Ha-Ze-Na-Na, which translates in English to Spotted Cloud.
