I started painting over six decades ago and began winning art competitions at an early age.
I grew up in the Chicago area and received my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Rhode Island School of Design.
Working as a freelance illustrator and designer, I produced art for advertising agencies, book and magazine publishers and corporations. One of my expecially fun designs is the Terrapin Beer turtle logo. The original design can be seen at the Terrapin Taproom at Atlanta Braves new Truist Park.
My wife Lou and I owned and operated the McWilliams Gallery in Libertyville, IL exhibiting the work of regional artists while I independently developed my unique style of apiting.
I call my work Pop-Pointilism. I have painted millions of dots over many years and my work has been viewed by people from around the world. All ages find it fascinating.
Each piece of art requires hundreds of hours of concentration and thousands and thousands of small brush strokes of color, each stroke requiring a decision. Any given square inch may contain as many as 18 different colors within the hundreds of dots. The process is mathematical, scientific and intuitive.
My paintings have been exhibited in galleries, fine art shows and are in private collections around the country.
A favorite part of my art has always been meeting and talking to people. I have wonderful memories of my art shows and thank everyone for their support.
I recently had a stroke and will probably not do more shows.
So now I am making a website.
I hope you enjoy!
