As a departure from most of today's professional artists... I developed natural drawing skills at an early age, and decided never to be swayed by the traditional erudites of art education.  In short, I dance to my own drummer.  I opt for the non-pretentious beauty of that which touches my soul. I can readily draw or paint anything (an old friend taught me how to close my eyes and visualize the subject matter).  My art precept is simple... "Everything in life is a challenge.  View it this way and it's pan bread, view it that way, and it's sourdough... Just make it work!"

I'm often asked how I display my art in my homes in PA. and NY.  So, I thought that I'd show a few areas here on my website.  Every room of my homes contains my work.  I believe that paintings and sculpting's embellish the personality of any area, and transforms a house into a home.
