"The briefest of bios'"

"I was born in Manhattan and when I think back on my early years in New York I feel like I was raised on Times Square, the location of my father's theatre ticket agency. It was the hub of my early New York experiences. Now, a resident of Maine I continue painting the city from my studio in Portland.

Over the years I have also found inspiring subject matter in the landscape of Maine and New Mexico as well as the steel towns of Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Weirton, West Virginia."

Critics' Comments:

"Among the best painters in Maine"
Edgar Allen Beem - Down East, The Magazine of Maine, November, 1998"

"His work is friendly, ever so slightly funny and packed with little delights of various kinds."
Ken Greenleaf - Portland Press Herald, July 21, 1996
