Science fiction has always spiced up my life. In 1949 my paternal grandfather taught me to read using his son's science fiction pulp magazines stored in the attic of the family bungalow in Chicago's Ravenswood neighborhood. I discovered science fiction fandom at Windycon in 1978. My artwork had always been a private journal of human existence ~ thus I regarded it as "amateur" whether or not it is published in fanzines or an occasional prozine. I have won numerous regional convention art show awards and twice the FAAN award for fanzine artwork. I received a record-setting series of seven consecutive nominations for the "best fan artist" Hugo award, finally winning at the 1986 Atlanta worldcon, Confederation. Then I promptly gafiated. Recently, however, through the kindness of friends, I rejoined the society of science fiction fans. Ultimately I seek to promote human evolution through art.
