--- I am primarily a self-taught Artist with background experience in two other careers --- in Television (as a Producer and Film Editor) and Law (as an Attorney).
In 2004, I began studying ART in several evening classes at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA. My ART education has benefited from guidance of a Mentor; Art Colony classes; watercolor Workshops; annual Art Fairs; and Art Exhibitions in the Midwest.
Two decades of producing and editing TV shows required creativity that informs my work as a Painter, today. --- In 1991, a chapter of "The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences" presented an HONOR to me as the Film EDITOR of an EMMY AWARD winning news report, that aired on a PBS station.
Since 2009, I've worked from my Home Studio in the Midwest where I paint Abstract-realist and Expressionist paintings on large canvases (50" x 50") and smaller (9" x 12") fine art papers.
My paintings have been exhibited in Art Fairs and Shows (international and regional). The ANGAD ARTS HOTEL & Grand Tavern (located in the art district of St. Louis, MO) displayed my painting "PUEBLO" (2019 thru Jan. 2020).
I continue an independent study of Art History, techniques of drawing, collage, and painting; and, I recently enrolled in the 7 session course --
INNER ENGINEERING (on-line) --
presented by SADHGURU (a Yogi Mystic and Visionary)
to learn more.
I trust that my work will resonate with you in very positive ways. My paintings are available on the internet at
-- my MOTIVATION and inspiration to paint starts with my observations of Earth's natural habitats; her wildlife; cultures of indigenous people -- my Ancestors --- Black, African, and Nanticoke Lenni Lenape of NJ --; and the stars, planets, and galaxies in the visible Cosmos.
I create Abstract/ Expressionist paintings... on large canvases and smaller, fine art papers.
