About Me

This is my "do good before retirement project". Both my parents were artists and the smell of home was more of turpentine not baking cookies. I had influential art teachers in both junior and senior high school. I studied art in Italy and came back to make a living in a dozen different fields. I earned a lifetime teaching certificate in California and taught photography around the Bay Area.

For a period I was the business agent for the art models co-operative. I grew to appreciate both the simplicity and the challenge of drawing.

Fifteen years ago my family and I moved to Kona. For us, this is the best place. I want to share it with you and invite you back every year. Aloha, Robert
