Oil Painter, 110 E. Olive Ave.,
Prospect Heights, IL 60070
Welcome to my web page. Briefly, I am a product of Maryville Academy (1942-55); a graduate of Loyola University, BS; served on active duty as an infantry officer in the 10th Infantry Division in Germany during the occupation period; married to Dorothy (Cooper) and have three children: Gregory, Kimberly and Gary; earned a Master's degree at Northern Illinois University; and now retired after thirty-two years of teaching English at both Glenbrook North and South High Schools.
My schooling in art is limited to high school art under Bruno Mack at Maryville Academy and later some workshop experience in oil painting under Robert Heuel,II O.P.A.
Also, as a member of the Arlington Heights Art Guild I have gleaned some techniques from our guest artists over the years. Painting is one of my hobbies that gives me pleasure and satisfaction and whatever talent there be it is certainly God given.
