This is my story. I am a professional fine artist and educator. At age eleven I knew my future path. In high school I was the class artist. I continued drawing and painting for several years and after a stint in the Army I attended The San Francisco Institute of Art. Since 1952 that path became more directed when I spent the summer on scholarship at the Wayman Adams Old Mill Art School in the Adirondack Mountains. In 1963 I began a fine art program at the Newark School of Fine and Industrial Art, graduating in 1966 with a diploma in Fine Art. Afterwards I pursued a B.S. in Art Education at New York University completing that in 1969. From there I went to Pratt Institute achieving my M.S. in Art Education and Painting in 1970. While at Pratt I studied with Ralph Wickiser, Joachem Seidl and George Peters who was my advisor. Also at Pratt I was an intern teacher in Life Drawing.
I am a past vice president of the Adirondack Art Association where I have exhibited my work over the last 10 years and have sold many paintings. I was also a board member of the Cultural Resources Center of Syracuse, NY from 1996–1998. Besides being on the faculty of the ?Vero Beach Museum of Art I am also a participating Museum member. Recently, I was invited ?to critique paintings from the 29th annual National Watercolor Exhibit in Old Forge, NY, called the “Walk-About” before an audience of one hundred artists and guests.
