Larry is a commercial arts major, honor graduate
of the York Academy of Arts, York, Pennsylvania, class of 1978. Since those early days his art career has been very creative, starting as a staff artist and art director with several printing companies then freelancing full time as an artist/illustrator. He was looking for something more exciting so he left "artwork" became a children's entertainer, using his creative talents for booking corporate and private events as "Jasper the Coloring Clown". Entertaining was fantastic, but the white face make up and powder was killing his health so Larry changed to performing as a live party caricaturist, successfully quick sketch drawing faces for about a decade. There were so many weekends, holidays and late nights far from home spent working that something had to change to make him happy with more time for his wife and family.
Today, things are at a much slower pace and decades have passed. Larry is making art to please his artistic spirit and not the crowd. He enjoys working both in the studio and on location en plein air. All those years of quick sketch are still useful in making interesting art although juggling, magic tricks and balloon sculpture will be reserved for his grandchildren, along with some art lessons and goofy stories.
