Art is not a job or career for me-it's a way of life. Even before I could speak, I had a crayon in my hand. My enthusiasm has not changed since those early days. In my 41-year illustration career, I have produced many hundreds of illustrations, covers for horror, mystery, fantasy, science fiction, and mass market books, as well as interiors for books and magazines. I have been nominated for the World Fantasy Award five times and the Chesley Award several times. My art has been exhibited at the Delaware Art Museum, the Moore College of Art, and the NY Illustrator Society 4 times. I have illustrated works by such authors: Harlan Ellison, Stephen King, Peter Straub, Lilian Jackson Braun, Charles L. Grant, Robert McCammon, Richard Laymon, Jack Williamson, Hugh B. Cave, Fritz Leiber, Pamela Sargent, Michael Resnick, J. G. Ballard, Steward O'Nan and Justin Cronin and many more. Currently, I am exploring painting techniques such as controlled accidents in which I'm finding images in the paint rather than working from a pre-conceived idea. The process of self-exploration excites me. I am working on a personal project titled, Nighthings, in which I explore the extension of two-dimensional painting with acrylic into three-dimensional space, using epoxy clay. These are small painted images that seem to crawl onto the frame. Having moved from my life-long home of New York to live in Tucson, Arizona I am currently discovering the adventure of exploring new landscapes, people, wildlife, plants and amazing sunsets while exploring my new surroundings. This will surely be reflected in my art. Having enjoyed much success in the illustration field, I have not had the time to explore my fine art as well as I would like. It is inspiring to live in a different world; experience its nature and artistically dive in.
