Born in New York, I've been an artist all my life. Received acclaim in the 2nd grade when I showed up to school with a picture storybook that I made myself. I drew my own characters and wrote the story. The teacher was very impressed and showed it to a member of the N.Y. Board of Education, which was put on display and seen and praised by Dr. Zuess! Moved to Fresno in 1960 and grew up here and attended Fresno City College majoring in art of course.
Occasionally I like to do acrylic paintings on canvas, but I seem to specialize drawing and sketching (primarily cartooning, caricatures) and painting and crafting 3 dimensional art. Currently I am absorbed with 3-D art pieces I call Pop Bottle Piggy Banks. They are definitely something different. These one-of-a-kind hand painted pieces are made from recyclable materials.
