In the past 35 years I made art with conventional art materials as a sculptor, potter and painter. I taught myself to create art on the computer and in the last 13 years, the challenge has been to combine technology with artistry, a complex and difficult process.

My art was exhibited in 9 solo exhibitions and more than 60 juried and invitational shows. My digital work is permanently exhibited at the University of Pennsylvania, cited in 2 art textbooks and is listed on London's Saatchi Gallery website by invitation. Currently I work in a Jewish Museum creating graphics and digital art with a Jewish theme.

My computer paintings are printed on paper, canvas or other materials in sizes ranging from letter to mural size. In addition to original computer paintings I make custom photo montages with personal materials supplied by clients.
