Born and educated in New York through high school, I grew up spending winters in Queens and summers on Long Island at the beaches near the Hamptons. I studied art at the University of Miami and the University of North Florida before hitchhiking from Florida to San Francisco in the early 1970’s, and making it my permanent home in 1978. While working full time in law offices, I continued to take classes at the San Francisco Art Institute, the San Francisco Academy of Art, and San Francisco State University, where in 1991 I graduated as a painting major with a B.A. in Art. Since then, I opened JAG’s Art Studio at the Beach where I create and sell my original fine art paintings, limited edition giclee prints and other hand-made items. People from all over the world come to San Francisco’s Ocean Beach to appreciate its beauty and add to it their own energy, colors and memories. I’m one of those people, making paintings from the heart about the place where I love to be living.
