been blessed with the talent of drawing and painting since the
age of four, I have made a choice as I have aged to slow down
and enjoy my sunset years. However, now and in the future you
will still see me at our local art shows!
this time span I have donated many of my originals, prints and
photographs to various groups, societies and associations to
raise monies for certain causes.
few years ago I came across some old 35mm prints that I had
enlarged to make a series of the Great South Bay Clammers. Islip
Town had a clam transplant program in 1976 and this was the
opening day. Only four of the prints were able to be printed.
These and other subjects have been produced and can be found
in Babylon Village shops.
paintings of our Fire Island Lighthouse, Captree Bridge, local
boats and the wonderful ocean front have become my favorite
subjects. Also, I have illustrated five books and have written
and illustrated four of my own. These were sold out at once.
Now I'm gathering my old Bay prints and tons of my photographs
of boats on the Great South Bay and will make a new book within
the next year or so."
