I was born to a good- natured, level headed dad and a nomadic, mercurial mom. They split up early in my childhood and my mother immediately remarried. As a result of that, not only did i see much of the world, but also much of its seamy side.
Thanks to my upbringing, I can spot an unhappy child with just a glance, read people’s character with just a few clues, and consider myself lucky to have had so many opportunities to overcome such severe hardships without hardening my heart.
I became serious about my artwork in 1992 when i moved to this little village with big-city citizens living here. That was also the year I joined forces with my partner, husband-like talent of a genius, George forss, famous photographer.
Almost immediately, a NYC gallery picked up my art work, and toured it around the northeast and southeast of the USA, as well as in New York City. I’ve been showing at various venues since then, because, people say, my work is highly recognizable and highly original. I have my own style.
I’ve been very happy these last twenty years. Every year gets better than the preceeding year because I continue to develop my humanity, via the sure-fire method and melody of the Nichiren Buddhist practice that introduced me to the never-harden-your-heart-and-become-a-victor-in-life concept.
