Printmaker, Photographer, Painter
I am a printmaker, photographer and painter, working in my studio in Times Square, and teaching in New York City. This website presents my early and current work, introduces books I wrote (published by Penguin/Random House), and explains how I got where I am over the last forty-five years.
This all-in-one guide is both technical and inspirational, examining the history and contemporary processes of relief, intaglio, lithography, serigraphy, mixed media, digital transfers, and post-digital graphics. Featuring step-by-step examples alongside works and profiles of top printmaking artists, this colorful, hardcover 310 pages recourse provides a truly fresh look at printmaking today, in all its forms.
This book offers an exciting entry into a new world of limitless colors, textures and effects. Intended for serious artists, painters, printmakers, and photographers, this book provides a comprehensive series of 305 pages with detailed and illustrated tutorials, cataloguing the various tools, techniques, and methods for producing an infinite variety of creative imagery with Photoshop.

Why I Create Art
I create to transcend reality, to feel alive in all dimensions. I am inspired by the vastness of the world and the unlimited universe, where I could be relevant for a speck of a second. So I choose to make timeless images, and re-invent places to be and to share.
