Some People are simply driven to draw and paint what they see around them.
I am one of them. I began as a small child and I have been an artist all
of my life. My paintings are executed in water colors and acrylics. I have
never indulged in abstract intellectual notions of art. I have merely
tried to capture the things I enjoy observing, while hoping to share these
observations with others.

I firmly believe in the preservation of things natural,
though I saw little of nature while growing up on the streets of New York.
I began to draw in earnest before entering first grade, and I did my first
paintings (oils on cardboard) when I was eleven years of age. Back then, I
mistakenly saw this as a mere hobby (I built model airplanes, too).
But after a lifetime engaged in commercial art I've turned my attention to the
fine art of wildlife painting, trying to capture in watercolors the many
wonderful creatures residing in the natural world.
