I began working in art at an early age. My mother created art and passed interest in the arts onto her son. She introduced and encouraged artistic skills. I majored in art and math at Clinton Central School, Clinton, NY. Received an Associate in Applied Science degree from Mohawk Valley Community College, Utica, NY, in 1977 majoring in Advertising, Design, and Production. Received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Syracuse University in 1979 majoring in Illustration. I have worked with film & stage productions, publishers, advertising agencies, graphic design studios, offset printers, screen printers, and videographers. My business “Midair Studio” produces and distributes limited edition prints and serigraphs, original art, and graphics plus offers illustration, murals, graphic design, stage set design, prop creation, and video production.
