I am a retired marketing communications professional who in my earlier years worked in a number of creative services companies in Philadelphia, PA... one of which was a graphic design studio I was a founding partner of in 1980 and managed for 13 years. Before that I had worked for two large advertising agencies just at the tail end of the “Golden Era” of advertising.
Because of that I have had the great fortune of working with some very talented art directors, creative directors, writers, photographers, illustrators, graphic designers, typographers, printers and even fine artists over the years who opened up whole new worlds for me. Self- taught I have been painting
more regularly since my retirement, although I dabbled very sporadically with drawing, airbrush, watercolor and oil during
my working years.
Pictured in the header above is the entrance to the studio my wife Lisa and I created over our garage in Leicester, NC. We relocated here 8 years ago from Cherry Hill, NJ. Lisa, who has a counseling practice in Asheville, is just beginning to paint and I now can enjoy her company on occasion in the studio.
In 2022 I completed a year as an active member artist at the Asheville Gallery Of Art in downtown Asheville, NC, where my paintings were on display. I decided to relinquish membership this year to free up time and to pursue other activities. I am not currently represented by any gallery. If you have interest in purchasing any of my work represented here or would like to commission a painting, please contact me through the link on my contact page.
