I have been trained by a family of artists and artisans. Three generations of art have been my heritage. My style has developed over time to be I believe recognizable as my own. My influences are color faces art circa 1933 movie palace decor and 1930’s movie advertising art. I would in particular note influence by Art Deco muralist Charles Stafford Duncan (Paramount Theatre Oakland CA) for his dramatic use of black and The Freed Unit at MGM for their dramatic use of Technicolor. As owner operator and venue restorer of Chicago’s Music Box Theatre (1983-2006) I’ve had faux finishes take over my artistic life until early retirement in 2006. Thus far I am happy to have my paintings in private collections in Carlsbad CA Benicia CA Chicago IL Denver CO Raleigh N.C. Boston MA and Nevis West Indies.
