I have been a Artist for my whole life. My Collected works of over 40 years is archived here in detail for your enjoyment. The primary purpose of my art is a desire to express my thoughts and dreams as visuals and sound

My web pages are divided into different periods -roughly based on chronology. I've lived in "forested rural suburbia" for over 30 years and the beauty and serenity of the country side is an inspiration to me. I have primarily shown my work in that time at The City Without Walls Gallery - New Jersey's longest existing independent art gallery. I have participated in about 10 shows at CWOW since 1980. I've tried but I find the "local art scene " provincial and inbred in nature and prefer the more sophisticated approach to art that I find at CWOW..

In 2008 I had a retrospective show at Fairleigh Dickinson University of 90 of my paintings. You can see the event in the exhibition link.

Since 2010 I have been working in the "surrealistic painterly style" I embraced around 1970. Much of my work now is intimate in size with an emphasis on detail and color. I have made over 300 paintings & 3 handmade books of paintings since then. "Books I","The Black Book" and  ."Afterlife"were shown in the City Without Walls 2012,2013 & 2014 Metro Shows.

In 2015 I am showing large major works in Maxwells Restaurant in Hoboken, The Zufall Health Annual and Hanover Township City Hall.

-. I have made music throughout my life as well.
