This is a display of my artwork
from Panama. The purpose was to record U. S. Army Reserve
activities but I think I went beyond that.

I was born in 1951 and raised
in New Jersey. I now live in Cincinnati, Ohio with my wife Patty,
and three daughters: Shannon, Kelly and Erin. Do you detect an influence
from my wife's Irish heritage? I graduated Newark State College in 1973
with a B.A. degree in Fine Arts. I also spent a semester as an exchange
student in England. After graduating, based on a friend's advice, I returned
to college to get a Teaching Certificate for Art. I received that in August,
1975. I couldn't get a teaching job in September, so I joined the U.S.
Army in October. I received my commision from Officer Candidate School
and stayed on active duty for almost 12 years. I am now a Lieutenant
Colonel in the Retired Reserve. I have been throughout the continental
US as well as Hawaii, Germany, and Panama. I started entering art shows
at the age of 16 and continued throughout my life. I won awards in Army-wide
art competitions and in 1992 I was selected to be a
member of the Army Art Team sent to Panama to document Army activities
in that country. I spent 82 days in Panama and produced over a hundred
pieces of art. This work is now part of the US Army Center of Military
History Art Collection.
