I grew up in Buffalo with art all around me. My father, Irving Mink, was an abstract painter, and visits to the Albright Knox or helping set up for the Allentown Art Fair were part of living. I started painting relatively late, and went through as many styles, subjects, and media as I could, before coming happily to rest in a world of texture, color and line. I find that I am continually pulled in new directions rather than staying with one style or point of view.
I moved to Ithaca,New York in 1976 where I pursued a PhD in Comparative Literature, was a freelance actor in television and radio commercials, News Director of WHCU radio. received an MA degree in History from Cornell University. served on the Tompkins County Legislature for 12 years, and founded and produced the Light in Winter Festival of Science and Art… I have taught Management Communication at Cornell University’s Johnson Graduate School since 1986, which keeps me in canvases and paint.
I am represented by Velvenoir for European sales, Indigo Art Consultants in London, and online at Saatchi Art,and Redbubble.com. Work can be found throughout the United States and Europe.
