"My aim is to be understood by everyone. I reject the ‘depth’ that people demand nowadays, into which you can never descend without a diving bell crammed with cabbalistic bullshit and intellectual metaphysics. This expressionistic anarchy has got to stop… A day will come when the artist will no longer be this bohemian, puffed-up anarchist but a healthy man working in clarity within a collectivist society."
Born in Denver April 29, 1936 Parents died at early age, moved from relative to relative First real job was running cars into Mexico for resale Later became a used car salesman No formal art training, learned all I know from a friend, who taught me the fundamentals and encouraged me to paint. After five years of intensive work, I moved to South Elgin to be near my friend. My hobbies are flying and reading. I had a plane but lost it when I decided to devote my full time to painting and couldn’t make the payments.
