Born in NJ . Self taught in the early years.
I Won many awards for My Horse portraits, wildlife and still lifes.
I started to draw and paint in gramer school. When in High School I took extra classes in art and won awards for my work . when I got married.I gave up painting and raised my two daughters Nancy and June. Later I studied with Jack Jackson in Florida and painted with fellow students of his.
I always had a love for horses. I raised and raced horses for 35 years. At one time I drove the sulky Horses and won many races in the 70s & 80s. Then I switched to Thoroughbreds I race and raise my young ones on my farm in Ohio. This gave me the insight for painting realistic portraits of their moment in history. I have retired from the Horse racing and devote my time in my studio. I currently have a studio in my home and plan on opening a new gallery and school soon. Watch for updates in 2014.
