I was born in the Bronx, but raised in upstate NY. I graduated Washingtonville HS in 1970 with Art Club & Most Artistic Senoir awards. I became a Nomad for 6 years traveling the country in my 66VW bus. In 1976 I opened Simple Signman art studio in Sugarloaf, NY. In 1979 I earned an Associates Degree in Commercial Art from Orange County Community College. In 1982 I bought a handyman special home in Mitown Kingston, NY & opened the 'OFF-BROADWAY GALLERY'. In the early 90's I did an Independent Study in Art Therapy through Empire State College. In 1991 I opened 'AIR (ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE) STUDIO GALLERY' & continue to run it as an Artists Cooperative making the space available to Artists & Musicians for music & art events. I love to draw, paint & combine mediums. I enjoy photography & video, also. As a Father of 5 I enjoy working with children in my Art Fun for Kids program & have worked extensively with Special Needs Kids from several Ulster County & Social Service programs. I am an active member of ASK, The Art Society of Kingston (ASKFORARTS.ORG) & The 'ULSTER COUNTY ARTS COUNCIL' (ULSTERCOUNTYARTSCOUNCIL.ORG).
