"I was born in Manhattan and when I think back on my early years in New York I feel like I was raised on Times Square, the location of my father's theatre ticket agency. It was the hub of my early New York experiences. Now, a resident of Maine I continue painting the city from my studio in Portland.
Over the years I have also found inspiring subject matter in the landscape of Maine and New Mexico as well as the steel towns of Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Weirton, West Virginia."
"Among the best painters in Maine"
Edgar Allen Beem - Down East, The Magazine of Maine, November, 1998"
"His work is friendly, ever so slightly funny and packed with little delights of various kinds."
Ken Greenleaf - Portland Press Herald, July 21, 1996
