Statement
I was born in New York City in 1943. I began writing poetry in the fourth grade and eventually attended the poetry workshop at the University of Iowa. I graduated from New York University. I did a year of graduate school in English Literature before working in journalism at the New York Times and Bergen Record. In the mid sixties I learned to play the guitar and started writing songs. I also began to become interested in photography. To support myself I worked as a carpenter, cook, teacher, healthcare worker, glass blower etc. I had three sons in my first marriage which ended after we lost our eldest in a car accident. I found painting as a way of coping with my grief and coming to terms with my loss. I have explored many mediums and the art making has been a transformational journey that has put me in touch with my soul in a new and deeper way. I remarried and my wife and I have two daughters. When my father died a wrote a book to help me come to terms with a long difficult relationship and put the past behind me. The book is called Forgive Myself and is available at Amazon.com. The soft cover ISBN is 978-1-4259-9805-9. The hard cover ISBN is 978-1-4259-9805-6.
