I never planned a career in art, it simply happened.  My only formal training consisted of studying drawing and rendering in connection with my training in architecture.  However, born the son of a painter, I experimented through childhood with oil painting and was exposed to fine art at the Washington Galleries.

In 1960, a museum curator, on seeing my paintings, observed that my independent development paralleled the direction pursued by a local group of painters referred to as Washington Color School.  I met several of these painters who urged me to start showing my work. Encouraged, I spent a few more years perfecting my style before joining the rank of professional.  I have since exhibited conte drawings on paper, oil and acrylic paintings on canvas and wood and plexiglass sculpture.
