When I wake in the morning and kick out of bed, I think ‘Fantastic, I’ve made it another day!’ 

Born in Brooklyn, Bob received formal art training at Cooper Union and the School of Visual Arts in New York. He has been involved in art most of his adult life.

He met Lydia, a fashion illustrator, in 1957 and they were married three and one half weeks later. They moved to Denver, Colorado in 1959 to start a family.

Bob worked as the art director of ABC TV, graphic designer for the National Center of Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and owner of Studio 10, a graphic art design studio.

In 1972 he moved his family of six to the small town of Lake City—high in the San Juans of Colorado. There they opened “The Artists’ Workshop”, an art gallery and working studio.

Bob and Lydia have taught, sold and practiced art ever since! During this time they have gained national acclaim and their artwork can be found in private collections throughout the world.



I enjoy good food, good music, people (in small numbers), good humor, cooking and of course… art. Fishing ain’t bad either!

It gives me great satisfaction knowing that I am adding some enjoyment to this world through my contributions as an artist. While at the same time, we have been able to raise four wonderful kids who each have a love of art. I truly hope I am able to add to your life in some way, too!
