He received his training at Meinzinger Art School in Detroit, Michigan and Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Maine. He became an instructor at The Ohio State University alongside Roy Lichtenstein for a brief period before becoming a regular of the New York City art scene of the early 1950’s.
