Born November 23, 1948 in Jersey City, NJ. I grew up in Union City, Attended Pratt Institute and graduated cum laude in 1970 with a BFA in Art education and a minor in visual communication. Taught art from 1970 till 2001 in the NJ public school system in grades 7 thru 12. I loved turning kids on to the joys of artistic expression. As is the case with most teachers, I needed to supplement my income in order to support my growing family. In 1973 I created a part time graphics business called Sunshine Graphics in order to help make ends meet. My minor in visual communications allowed me to grow this one man show into a successful venture. Logo design, murals and graphic displays for large and diverse businesses allowed me the opportunity to supplement my teachers salary as well as stretching my creative vision. I retired from teaching in 2001 and devoted myself full time to my graphics business. To stay competitive it was necessary to transition from hand painting art for my clients to utilizing the emerging digital technologies. I needed to invest in very high definition giclee’ printers for commercial output of color sensitive graphic displays. As time progressed and I faced the realization that I was about to turn 60, I began to long for the joy of unbound creative expression that I savored at Pratt. In 2010 I began to reduce my attention to the commercial side of my graphics business and invest more time in pure artistic pursuits. In 2015 I finally closed up shop at Sunshine Graphics and began a full time effort to pursue my creative vision. It was time to follow my bliss!
