About The Artist

In a demanding world of expression in art and music, I found that I had a gift in both of these areas.  Being of Italian decent and with these gifts, I wanted to go into the arts.

I am an experienced freelance artist working full-time in many studios and advertising agencies.  I especially enjoy, and am devoted to, creating custom paintings and portraits using many mediums.  I am skilled in Fine Art, Illustrating, Airbrushing (retouching), Graphic Illustrating, and Logo Designs.  

During the early to mid 1950s, I worked for Lester Rossen Art Associates restoring Norman Rockwell paintings for magazine ads.

Over time, I worked as a freelance artist for Warsaw Studios, Phillips, Miller, Speyer and Frost Inc., Balan Graphics and Willow Graphics, in addition to other advertising agencies.

From 1961 - 1981 I worked for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Police Department.  During this time, 100 crimes were closed due to my skills in photography, visual aids, and composite drawings. 

From 1986 - 1992 I founded White Dove Art Service and became self-employed.

I retired in 1995 and started to work in art shows and galleries.  Presently, I take pleasure in creating custom artwork for clients.
