Biography: 

My artistic development traces back to my earliest memory as a child who drew obsessively.  My identity as an artistic person became a foundational psychological quality of my development. 
I decided that I had no other alternative but to pursue what I knew about myself as a child.  The decision was not easy as it required faith to follow my path which was filled with challenges and many doubts.  
I am greatly indebted to my first college teachers who gave me courage in Community College and to my Graduate program MFA professors (especially Lois Dodd, Lennart Anderson and Philip Pearlstein) at Brooklyn College who offered clarity and friendship.  Lois Dodd is still a vital force in my life and I am in touch with her regularly.  Equally vital are my family my wife Judy and my sons, my artist friends Mel Leipzig and Linda Pochesci and my students who all offer me continued insight, guidance and inspiration to paint.
