What you see on this site is my "art-o-biography". Almost all the paintings in these galleries tell the story of my life. That is what an illustration does and so I refer to myself as an illustrator. On these sites you will find my birthplace, my travels, my loves and my friends. After more than fifty years in the advertising art business (or commercial art, as it was once called), I retired in 2007 and commenced to assemble past works and illustrate my life.
I am a native of Portsmouth Ohio, and one of my galleries on this site is devoted to that city. I can honestly say that in each of my works, "I was there". I received fine art training at Ohio State University and then went to work for a major advertising art studio in Columbus Ohio (Columbus Art) followed by art director positions at ad agencies in Columbus (Harry M. Miller), (Myers, Kelly and Lamb), (Myers), Cleveland, Ohio (Carr Liggett) and Dayton, Ohio (Kircher, Helton and Collette) before starting my own Ad/Art Agency (artOmat) in Tampa, Fl. After retiring from business at the turn of the century, I went with the St Petersburg Times retiring the second time in 2007. . You may contact me via email. firstname.lastname@example.org
