My grandfather was an artist and inspired me to paint. I've been enjoying my passion for over 40 years. I was very fortunate to paint with a master painter, Pietro Antonio Narducci for many years. He told me to call him Pan and today he is known as the father of Abstract Expressionism. Pan painted with Jackson Pollack, who had a profound influence on his work. My work is still in the developmental state and I'm looking forward to where ever it leads me.
