I started painting at a young age; I would paint anything I could get my hands on. Overnight I went from painting Bozo the Clown to painting Alice Cooper, after seeing him on Wolfman Jack’s Midnight Special.
As I aged, huge banners were permitted at a concert venue and I often painted a bed sheet banner of the bands preforming that evening. To whomever is responsible for outlawing banners at concerts, I sincerely thank you! This is how my career of painting canvas was started.
The name “Rock N’ Roll Painter” was given to me by the lead vocalist of an internationally famous rock and roll band. I had painted a portrait of the vocalist and presented it to him at his private birthday bash in Manhattan in the 80’s. Their party was invitation only, however I was granted access with a 42” x 60” portrait of the musician. The painting was well received by the vocalist as I introduced myself. I went on to see this person on numerous occasions unexpectedly in New York City and he would say “Hey Rock N’ Roll Painter! How the hell are you!?” I was a little bothered that he didn’t address me by my name after I gave him my business card and had chatted with him when we ran into each other. After several encounters and being impressed with my work, he sent me up to Boston to a night club that was owned by their band for me to exhibit my art. The nightclub was Mama Kins, owned by Aerosmith. My title as “Rock N‘ Roll Painter” was given to me by Steven Tyler himself.
Throughout my entire personal life as well as my career, music and art has inspired me
