Life's Porfolios

Compiling 50 years...

of drawings, ink/wash and paintings, is no easy task.  Many are no longer with me (sold, missing, etc.).  Others are poorly photographed (before digital).  Some go back to college days.  More recent images include Genre scenes, Portraits, Studio Life etc.

You can view many Berk’s Works by clicking on the albums below.  All images there can be enlarged (click on them).  My artwork will continue to be updated, so please stop back often.  Enjoy and let me know what you think.
