In the Studio

But “serious” painting became his passion and his first body of work, at the Adam Gallery in New York, received excellent reviews and sold out. With such encouragement his passion became his full-time endeavor, resulting in numerous shows in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago, plus major galleries throughout the United States and at international art exhibitions. His paintings and sculpture are in major private and public collections as well as: The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Museum of Arts and Sciences in Columbia, NC, and the Palm Springs Museum of Art.
