For over forty years, I have been painting New Mexico's landscapes as well as portraits, figure studies and still lifes and have shown primarily in Santa Fe and Albuquerque in addition to Scottsdale, New York and Boston. I am currently represented by the Natalie Krol Gallery, Prescott AZ. The Ernest Hemingway Home in Key West, FL offers offset prints of my 1966 portrait of Hemingway, and prints are also available here on my website. I graduated from the Art Institute of Boston in 1960 and went on to study medical Illustration through the Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School program. For most of my years in New Mexico I was Director of Medical Illustration and Photography for The University of New Mexico School of Medicine. My work as a certified medical illustrator appears in over 250 medical text chapters, monographs and complete texts published in several countries. Since retiring in 2000, I have been able to devote more time to my painting with work accepted by numerous juried shows, such as The Masterworks of The Southwest. My paintings are in private collections across the United States and in the U.K., and have been used by film industry set designers here in New Mexico.
