I became a painter shortly after my epiphany … that I got no satisfaction from my profession as a publicist. And I was fortunate that on my first time out exhibiting my art at the Greenwich Village Art Show in New York, I was led to the now defunct America’s Folk Heritage Gallery (Madison Avenue, NYC), and at that critical time of transition, a vote of confidence that my artistic talent had value.
My artwork is creative imagery depicting my fantasies and experiences. My medium is mixed, acrylic paint on canvas, wood, and 3-D multimedia boxes. My paintings have been showcased in Country Living Magazine, Salon (Tokyo, Japan magazine), The New York Daily News, The Washington Post, The Miami Herald, Modern Maturity Magazine, and in a variety of syndicated newspaper articles. I was featured in a documentary for 1ARD German Television.
In addition to America’s Folk Heritage Gallery, my exhibition credits include: The Hortt Exhibition — The Museum of Art (Ft. Lauderdale, FL); Galerie Bonheur (Greenwich, CT); Cuban Museum (Miami, FL); Gallery: Why Not? (Miami Beach, FL); “Two Person Show” — Amdur Gallery (Miami Beach, FL); Gallery of the Eccentric (Coral Gables, FL); Sokolsky Gallery (Miami Beach, FL); “Portraits” — Metro Dade Library (Miami, FL); “A Salute to Outstanding Florida Artists” — State Capitol Building, (Tallahassee, FL); The Sher Gallery (Aventura, FL); Cando gallery, (Miami Beach).
