Born and raised in New York City  I studied Commercial Art at Brooklyn College as well as in the Black Hills of South Dakota.  I went on to run my own Hand painted Wall Covering manufacturing company out of the Brooklyn Navy Yard  for 14 years ,Some of my clients  where…Richard Nixon (Ex President), Barbara Eden (Actress),  Steve Garvey(Pro Baseball Player ) ,Mike Tyson (ex Heavyweight Champion of the World) and John Gotti (The Teflon Don)                                                                                                                                                           I relocated to London almost 20 years ago.  Since then I have  concentrated on Oil Painting  . A few years ago I decided to go back to school and get a degree in Multimedia.  Where I picked up my love of photography. I now spend most of my time painting and taking photos for clients .                                                                                                                This site is a very small portion of my catalog . If you care to see more please feel free to get in touch with me , Thanks for taking the time to look .
