A Few of my Favorite Things!
"Each day comes bearing its own gifts..." Untie the Ribbons."--R.A. Schabacker
Early in the sixties, as four fellow Liverpudlians took America by storm, my family arrived in the US and settled in New Jersey. After forging a successful 30-year career in publishing and journalism, in 2001, my lifelong dream of studying painting became a reality as I began extended instruction with several of the finest contemporary artists.
Moving forward, this visual journal is a way of chronicling a personal odyssey in art. I hope that by sharing my passion for painting life's journey, it will become a gateway for us to connect... exchange ideas... inform... inspire and entertain... all with the Arts in mind.
