Bio: I am old enough that a “short” biography is a stretch.
I was rather proud of myself, at twenty-four, getting a gallery on the left bank of Paris, which, after a year of good sales, resulted in having my dealer offer me a monthly stipend and a little house in Frenes, France, just outside of Paris.
It seems a very long time ago.
After being convinced that my future lay in being an exhibiting painter, I found myself entrenched in making dolls for toy companies: Cabbage Patch dolls being the best known.
Midway in my doll life, I spun over to creating animation, but the financial pull of the doll business kept me busy until I retired.
The thirty plus years devoted to making a living took an enormous bite out of my art life.
With a yelp of freedom, I have returned to painting and sculpting and fabric design and making assemblages. Lately, I have played with ceramic sculpture. I am currently focused on drawing and painting in egg tempera without neglecting my passion for big oil canvases.
