Seems Like a Million Miles and a Million Paintings, All in the Same Spot.

CV 2016

I graduated with a MFA in Fine Arts from Wayne State University in 1973 in Detroit.  Painted and explored during my maturing era, documenting people’s rooms.

Then in a Christmas Depression which is typical as I am Jewish and  feel so left out as the Christmas Spirit was never communicated to me. My Muse grabbed me by the hand and my artistic dream came true. What took her so long?

Images pouring out of my head onto paper. I rewrote my life events that were bothersome and created new endings.  I cured myself and rarely looked back, only to see if there was anything I had missed. Next, I painted Avatars to help others and then went to fight for the World and now it’s Dreams of Peace.  

I am a painter who tells stories and loves to document the world I live in. Not only the events of today but it’s people, environments, and creatures, who share the planet.  All of  this falls into my realm, with comments so the audience knows what I am thinking. I don’t want anyone to miss my humor, 

So join me  on the  journey, and let my artwork show you my truth with fun for all.


A Peculiar History of Detroit  by Peter O’Keefe, is a testimony that some Detroiters felt I made a difference, documenting places and events of the city. I’m the only artist who has more than one picture. I have all the art pages. Detroit.pdf
