My Bio I grew up in North Plainfield, New Jersey and went to School of Visual Arts in New York City. My most influential art teacher was Harvey Dinnerstein who taught painting at SVA. The year was 1969 to 1973.
I paint in pastel, oil and acrylic and teach drawing. I love drawing and believe you must have strong drawing skills before going into other mediums.
I also have always believed that drawings have a very special place as a finished work and not just a study.
My first art book published on Blurb.com is dedicated to my mother who gave me the gift of art appreciation.
