I am Professor Emeritus retired from The Columbus College of Art and Design CCAD. Ive lived and made my art here for 35 years beginning as a student at CCAD and returning after accomplishing my MFA from Boston University. Im now retired and living in Virginia.
Ive taught drawing, color, design and painting techniques in the illustration area since 1985. Ive exhibited in Columbus regularly, written up in the Dispatch and in Dialogue Magazine, extended my exhibitions spiraling out from Columbus to various galleries in Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky then Maryland, New York, Oklahoma and Washington State Hiroshima Japan, Washington DC, then to Budapest Hungary, Dresden Germany, Zagreb Croatia, Buenos Aires and Cordoba Argentina
Early in my life I worked as an IllustratorDesigner after high school and while putting myself through art school later. I worked on projects for Apple computers, OETA PBS and Oprah Magazine.
My work is all over the world owned by people like the former Director of the National Archives in Zagreb Croatia, a Bank President in Holland, The Greater Columbus Arts Council, OSU Newark and there are works in collections in Washington DC, New York, Texas, Ohio, Oklahoma, California, Chicago, Buenos Aires, Cyprus.
A peace poster I designed as I finished my grad program in Boston is in the permanent collection of the Hiroshima Museum of Art. There are a total of 11 silkscreened Hiroshima posters in collections around the world as well as others in personal collections in the U.S. as I was one of some 300 American artists invited to produce a work for the 40th Commemoration of the Bombing of Hiroshima in 1985.
I�ve sold a number of works here in Columbus over the years, mostly to private collections�It is a certain variety of collector who is drawn to my work�it is often cerebral, often cutting, not always happy although I am a master of color. This is work that will prosper long after all the commercial stuff collected by corporations is seen as old and too cutesy. Although public enough for a large quantity to be exhibited in 2010 at the Shot Tower Gallery at Fort Hayes High School for the Arts�in fact a number of those works are still up in the base of the tower as you enter the gallery.
