At the age off 55, he became interested in painting
again as therapy following a serious illness. Watercolor
painting has given him a zest for life as no other medium
has. His work is exhibited in many galleries in Northeastern
Ohio. His work has a quality of a fine draftsman
and his use of light and color show his individual
approach to watercolor.
He has taken watercolor workshops in Maine,
Pennsylvania, and Ohio, working with leading artists.
