Born in the Detroit area, like most “Motor
City” boys of that era, my dream was to become a car designer, just
like my father, who was directly responsible for the artistic gift I
was born with.
However, after a Commercial Art degree, and a stint in the Navy as
an Illustrator, I ultimately became an Industrial Designer in the
Commercial Aircraft Industry. While employed by Boeing, I was
responsible for the creation of presise hand painted renderings of
the interior design for Air Force One, and other v.i.p. clients. It
was there that I developed my precise painting style that has become
the signature technique in my fine art painting of today. After
creating numerous commissioned works for various clients in Beverly
Hills, including the CEO of a famous clothing designer, several
portrait commissions, and a small series of wine bottle paintings,
titled “The Grapes of Roth”, I ultimately found a permanent niche
painting an on-going series of highly detailed, whimsical cat
paintings I call the “Kool-Kat Kollection”.
These images are executed in acrylic, utilizing the precise and time
consuming air brush techniques of my work from Boeing. The series
has been quite popular among cat lovers, and the images are now
licensed to numerous greeting card and jig-saw manufacturers. Being
a devoted animal lover my entire life, creating my paintings is a
genuine “labor of love” for me, but I must say that my greatest
reward comes from seeing the big smiles they bring to the faces of
my collectors. Please visit my web site at www.kool-kats.com to view
the images for yourself. You may just deside to become a “Kool-Kat
