Why is it so many writers seem to also be avid visual and/or performing artists? Whether it's sketching, painting, sculpture, photography, digital graphic art, cover art, videography, music, singing or dance, all seem related to writing to observant authors. I'm lucky to have had a parent who is a writer, painter and illustrator. 

I've been sketching and painting as long as I can remember. My professional painting career began in 1976, when, in San Francisco, with 200 paintings tucked in my portfolio, I decided to begin showing and selling. I've had the pleasure of having my first showing hosted at the Bill Graham Auditorium of the San Francisco Civic Center, and since at numerous university art exhibitions, and more recently at the Gallery on the Pali in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA. 

Sculpture came later. In 1979, I exhibited at several private art exhibitions in the San Francisco Bay Area including "Wolf Howling" and "Treasure," both of which received positive acclaim.

While I still paint and sculpture, the fine art form that remains closest to my heart is photography. I began producing and selling advertisement photographs I'd taken with a beat up, hand-me-down Kodak box camera early in 1960, advancing in 1964 to scenic photography for postcards using an old Nikormat. At Park College, I was gifted a Canon Pellix and began taking students and faculty portraits as well as exhibiting. While at medical school, I developed an interest in three-dimensional photography that continued through my NASA research associateship years, peaking during a meeting at the USSR Institute of Biophysics in Akademgorodok, Siberia, former USSR, where I was introduced to "Denisyuk" holography. Since then, I've run through several two-dimensional and three-dimensional cameras, eventually graduating to four-dimensional photography, namely, regular and 3-D videography. My interests in photography led naturally to digital graphic art and cover art production when I began Savant Books and Publications, and I've served as cover artist for select Savant and Aignos publications (below).

My interest in videography continues to present, with the release of my Telly award-winning documentary on water quality, "Clean Water, Common Ground." Who knows where my videography interests will take me next!

My passion for the past 20 years has been International style Standard and Latin dance. A registered USADance DanceSport athlete, I continue to compete to present.
