I am a native New Yorker. I will never give that up even though I crossed the Hudson to New Jersey in 1977. I have been a photographer since 1971 when I took a little rangefinder on a European vacation. My artistic instincts developed when I realized that the sharpness and technical 'correctness' of photography was not appealing to me; I really wasn't interested in 'reality'. So I began softening my images and ultimately began creating abstracts, and then paintings. Today, my photographs are simply unfinished paintings. Computers and software have opened up a new world for me and I have mastered the two industry standards, Adobe Photoshop and Corel Painter. These artistic aids, my photographs, and my imagination, assist me and motivate me to become a better artist. You may order fine art prints here. I will also accept commissions for pet and people portraits Please contact me directly if you wish to preserve your pampered pet or person in a uniquely painted portrait.
