About me

Gender MALE
Industry Education
Occupation Retired
Location Juno Beach, Florida, United States
Introduction I am a gay artist and art educator of 38 years, retired in 2005. I am currently producing artwork in several areas. 1) Pastel drawings of ocean, sky", beach, and marsh 2) Photography of the same, 3) Digital montages with a gay male theme, and 4) A blog titled Isaac Stolzfuts’ Journal. In the past I have also worked in oils and graphite producing over-sized artwork of cultural icons in a hyper-real style. I have a partner of 40 years. In the summer of 2005 we sold our house in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and moved to Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, and Juno Beach, Florida with the intention of spending half of the year in each location. In January 2008 we homsteaded in Florida in an effort to slow our exploding Palm Beach County taxes. As an artist the ocean, sky, saltwater marshes, and the light at both beach resorts has inspired me to create a new body of work.

What did you dream when you ate a spider while sleeping?

I dreamed an alternate unvierse (V3.5 named Digitanus) in which a race of part plant part animal creatures are engaged in much the same idiocy as takes place here on Earth.
