I would like to welcome everyone to my website which features many of the images, of the more than 400 that I have created. What you are about to enjoy is the result of almost 50 years of jazz life, wide travels, inspirations from meeting many of my musical heros such as [Sonny Rollins, Dianna Krall, Miles Davis, Tony Bennett, Dave Brubeck, Sarah Vaughn and Oscar Peterson, The Manhatten Transfer, etc.] who in most cases gave me some insight into what made them and hipped me to some good advice that I've tried to follow.
I do enjoy being collected by a small galaxy of stars, the likes of which include: [Phineas Newborn Jr., Dr. Calvin McLarin MD, Iman(Mrs. David Bowie), Shirley Horn, Toshiko Akioshi, Maya Soetoro Ng (President Obamas sister), Wynton Marsalis]. My career would not have been the same if not for the meeting and guidance that these luminaries provided me. Visual jazz images that I've done cover the range of oil on canvas, watercolor on paper, etchings on paper, woodblock on paper, sculptures. Museum quality materials are used in every instance. Will a full atelier education, I've learned and adheared to the principle of using only the highest quality materials which is very much in the French classical tradition.
Having traveled extensively in these United States with close to 100 one-man art shows and exhibitions, appearances at jazz festivals in Europe, on several occassions, you might say that I'm pretty well-travelled. Still I look forward to additional touring, meeting jazz lovers old and new and am always available for commissioned portraiture if so desired. Comments or request for information may be directed to email@example.com and you may be assured of a prompt response.
Wishing everyone happiness and health from the middle of the Pacific.
