Symphony acrylic 34 x 26 inches 1995
Somehow I beat the odds and began my career in the arts. Ironically, it was the cure, the radiation, that has caused my body the most harm.
Over the years, first with sculpture and then with painting, I realized how much my work, in spite of myself, has taken on a kind of healing process. I am often surprised by what I have created. It is as if a subconscious entity, aside from my conscious mind, can get at a level of expression that bypasses my usual fear and apprehension and creates art that is, in some ways, healing, harmonious, and occasionally even humorous.
I am the proud father of three, now grown, adopted children.
