I was born in 1946, and studied at Ferris State College, and the College for Creative Studies. As a painter I am really self taught, and have been painting for over 30 years. I have had more than 25 solo shows and numerous group shows. I currently show with the George Billis Gallery in NY and LA. My work is in over twenty corporate and museum collections and in hundreds of private collections. I live and work with my artist wife, Janet Hamrick and our two studio cats, Artie and Bella, in Ferndale, Michigan. We also have been subletting a painting loft in New York City for the last 15 years.
