I am a fine artist. I have had a very successful career teaching art for 35 years in the Maine Township High School District #207, Park Ridge, Illinois, USA. I also taught Adult Art Education. I have won numerous awards as an artist and teacher. I work in all media, including oils, acrylics, alkyds, drawings, etchings, and lithography, as well as digital art and calligraphy. My work ranges from realistic to abstract, usually landscapes that evoke a poetic, whimsical attitude bordering on fantasy. All of my work is original and protected by copy write.
I have been married to Lorna for 52 years this August, 2012. We live in Rolling Meadows, Illinois. We have three grown married sons, and five grandchildren.
