I have been expressing my joy of art with paint, shapes and colors
since I was very young. I started as a painter, evolved into a photographer, and eventually began painting on my photographic
prints over 30 years ago.
I hand painted vivid colors on my Cibachrome prints, creating a
wonderful new magical reality, before Photoshop.
Now I scan my one-of-a-kind hand-painted prints and my library of
35mm Kodachrome color transparencies taken over the last 40 years, and I paint, collage and enhance them with Photoshop.
I produce limited edition archival chromgenic prints. For the last year
I have been printing on aluminum, which is the latest new medium for museum quality art prints.
I have been shown worldwide in many solo exhibitions including:
Butler Institute of American Art; Carnegie Art Museum in Oxnard, CA; Laguna Art Museum. CA; Petersen Automotive Museum, LA, CA;
LA County Museum of Natural History, CA; Monterey Museum of Art, CA; Nancy Hoffman Gallery, New York City; L’Image Gallery, Rome, Italy. Louis Stern Gallery, West Hollywood, CA; Wall Space Gallery, Santa Barbara, CA.
I have been in many group exhibits over the last 30 years, and
collected by museums, foundations, corporations and individuals worldwide. Numerous magazine articles and covers, two museum exhibition catalogues and two books have been published of my art, Garden Tales and Car Tales.
I am proud to announce that I have 65 large art works on exhibit for the next ten years in two important buildings at UCLA: The Ucla Law Library and the Anderson School of Management.
I have just installed 20 artworks printed on aluminum, at the UCSB Gervirtz Graduate School of Education. Most of the images are 40” x 60” and will be on display for atleast two years.
