1967 - My first sale
1968 - Works in progress


My first one man show was in Croton, New York at the Village Gallery in 1973. I was eighteen. The show was entitled: New Concepts in Pointillism. There were seven sales, among them still lifes I executed by dipping Q-tips in colored inks and overlapping the daubs for the myriad tones that resulted.

Moved to my new studio on twelfth street in the East Village to attend Cooper Union in the fall.

1974 - Leave of absence from Cooper to pursue my own work. Large pointillist canvasses and colorist machines #1 - 6 during this period. Continued my studies with friend and mentor, Jack Rabinowitz who first trained me in figure drawing and painting.


Resumed studies at Cooper Union under Dore Aston, Paul Resika, and Hans Haacke.


Awarded a Yale Fellowship to study art at their summer campus in Norwalk, Conn. There I studied painting and graphics in my junior year. Continued my work on Wildflowers of the Hudson Valley.


My second solo show was while I was attending Cooper Union in my senior year. At commencement I was invited to display my many colored boxes and constructions in Cooper’s Houghton Gallery for public exhibition. Graduated with the Sarah Cooper Hewitt Award.

Hung my mural: "Ordering Primal Soup" in Cooper's Foundation building lobby. This major effort was a sixteen foot watercolor and graphite painting done on masonite panels behind engraved glass. It took almost nine months to complete in sections and was finally assembled in it's entirety and lent for display in the Art School for the following year.


Moved to the Fingerlakes Region in New York where I started building my home and studio on Seneca Lake. Continued work on “Wildflowers of the Hudson Valley” along with local landscape watercolors and oils.


Had show in Ithaca, New York at the Inner Visions Gallery; my Color Machines were featured.
