I was born June 3, 1948, in San Francisco, CA. In August 1966, my family moved to New Jersey, and I started attending the School of Visual Arts in NYC, for 4 years majoring in Fine Art. I was in a scholarship program in the year l969-'70, and have a BFA in Fine Art. I also attended the Art Students League during the summers l967-'68.
I worked for the Transit Authority from Nov. l979 - Nov.1995, in the Station Department, and as a Train Operator. I had been painting and drawing in the abstract style, for quite awhile, but then went back to Realist and Surrealist painting in the summer of l996.
