I was born in Luzy, France in 1946. After an obligatory stint in the French Army, I worked in oil prospection in the Far East (Indonesia and Papuasia), travelled from New York to Argentina in a home built VW camper. I came back to Birmingham in 1974 to marry the “Southern Belle” I met on the way. We will celebrate our 50th Anniversary next year.
I have been a “local artist” since 1975, and was doing the Sidewalk Show before the Magic City Art Connection even existed. I was in this show at the beginning. I have done many outdoor shows and won many awards over the years, including Best of Show in early Magic City Art Connections and the $15,000 Best of Show in the 1994 Gasparilla Festival in Tampa.
I also had numerous one man shows at galleries in Birmingham, Chattanooga, New Orleans and Atlanta, as well as a show at the Wiregrass Museum in Dothan.
A mechanical engineer by training, I am entirely self taught. Starting as an avid amateur photographer, I have over the years learned to draw, paint, model, cast bronze and sculpt.
