Brief Biography

River has made art since early shildhood. Soon after his birth the family moved to Greece, where they lived in a suburb of Athens. Drawing and simple watercolors articulated his imagination. In the early 1950's his art remained a private world. The family relocated numerous times. Drawings of new places and people seemed to help orient and establish a sense of permanence. In the late 1950's and early 60's River refered to the art as "The Work". Life classes and painting assignments became regular. Sometimes he would invite friends over for painting sessions. Experimentation with block printing introduced the counterpoint of matrix and original hand.

Following his formal education he lived and worked in Europe and the U.S.A. This produced art and showing in the United States, England, France, Switzerland, and Greece. His art works include both representational and abstract paintings. River continues to be interested in primitive culture and stories about art in creational myth. A sociological awareness was fostered by his many travels. A sense of "Place" and "Persona" as expression of identity continues to influence his art.
