I am a retired college professor and I took up art to deal with of the death of my wife. My artwork has been liked by Danny Trejo, the movie and voice actor; Harumichi Shibasaki, famous Japanese artist; Malcolm Dewey, artist and art teacher; Liron Yanconsky, Artist and YouTube personalty; Holly Horner, actress, and by several musical groups, Art critics have described my work as surrealistic but with the charm of the everyday; full of visual surprises with anti-gravity, wittiness, and irony. As my artistic accolades go, I have had paintings displayed in the San Antonio Library, the Bihl Haus art gallery, and the Elvira Cisneros Senior Center. I was one of the team that painted the 60 foot by 6 foot mural celebrating the San Antonio tricentennial at the Elvira Cisneros center for which I was interviewed by KENS 5 TV and the San Antonio Express News. I paint landscapes, portraits of famous people, and the occasional still life. Now my art sells internationally, most recently to France.
