I started out at Hoboken New Jersey High School with art classes. I ventured in pastels, charcoal drawings and advertising posters. I took oil classes in 1954 – 1956, which was my favorite medium to paint in. Later on, went into acrylic classes for about 5 years doing mainly landscapes of all kinds in Pine Bush, New York. Then took pen and ink, pencil drawings and charcoal classes in Middletown, New York and went back to oil on canvas in Newburgh, New York painting all kinds from flowers, balloons,, seascapes, birds, etc. and my favorite, landscapes. Painting is very relaxing and rewarding with a personal feeling of accomplishment.
