Welcome to my blog and gallery. I am an artist living in NE, Ohio with my wife and children.
I dropped out of art school during my first year (I hated art school) to go to New York. I lived briefly in Chelsea and then the East Village for a number of years. I supported myself from the sale of my work, mostly prints (etchings and lithographs). Later I moved to Brooklyn and then to New Jersey; finally, we moved to Ohio on Lake Erie.
I never wanted to be a professor, consequentially I’ve had a variety of jobs.
About the blog and gallery
I use my blog to write about art and art-making. One goal I set myself is to write about things that practicing artists and art students can find useful–the nuts and bolts of art making. I also review exhibitions, books, music, and films. Occasionally I write about politics, current events, and the wider culture. But art is my main focus and the reason for the blog.
The online gallery is roughly organized by date, although many (most) of my works are not online. This is especially true of my earlier work, of which only a fraction is online. It takes time to go through the older work and I’ve lost track of a lot of the owners, especially the print collectors. I add older pieces to the gallery as I’ve time.
I painted this large work (6′ x 8′) titled Black Lake in the late ’80’s when I was still living in New York. To date, it’s the largest painting I’ve done.
