About Me

I was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease in the late 1990s and was forced to retire from my orthodontic practice. I had dabbled in charcoals and pen and ink, while attending college and professional school. When I retired, I looked for something to occupy my time, my hands, and my brain.

I had always been accustomed to working with my hands and through trial and error, I found that painting with watercolors was an excellent mental and physical activity. Over the past several years I have taken numerous courses by: Pat Weaver,

Don Andrews, Thomas Owens, Ted Nuttal, Linda Dolland, and many others.

I was a city boy and took advantage of what New York City had to offer: Stuyvesant High School, Brooklyn College, and New York University School of Dentistry. I spent two years (1964 to 1966) on the Navajo Indian Reservation with the US Public Health Service. It was my first exposure to the magnificent blue, red, and yellow colors of the Arizona desert. I fell in love with the desert, the weather and its people.

I have exhibited my watercolors in numerous galleries including: Skyline Country Club, Tucson Jewish Community Center, Tucson Botanical Gardens, and Murphey Gallery, and many others.
