Art finds value in sharing things made special. My paintings continue to explore the human experience, nature, and unusual juxtapositions: A curious yellow chick nose to nose with a porcupine, a raven watching large dice fall from the sky, and lately a man riddled with cancer a week before he died. I worked as an art instructor and a street portrait artist for fourteen years mostly in Santa Fe, NM after graduating from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in 1975. An expressionist portrait occasionally appears on my easel. I was a Goggleworks studio artist in Reading, PA from 2011 to 2018 when my wife and I bought a house in Stowe, PA with an attached studio that was once a ceramics workshop.
