American artist Todd Krasovetz was born in Frankfurt, Germany and is internationally renowned for his contemporary abstract expressionism style of painting. Krasovetz’s influences can be tied back to the works of Sargent, Matisse, Van Gough and Pollock. Krasovetz is also recognized for his military artwork; two of his paintings, titled “Wings of Hope” and “Hidden Wings,” that depict Navy corpsmen in action were commissioned for the set of the Lifetime TV show “Army Wives.” The original paintings are on permanent display at Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton and the Corpsman Field Training Center on base. “Army Wives” features hand-painted prints of the originals. Todd’s business partner, Steve Brower, is an art aficionado, as well as an accomplished pilot who flew as a Captain for American Airlines for 25 years and who now flies a private corporate DA10 aircraft.

The Armed Services YMCA (ASYMCA) “Mommy and Me” program is a preschool parent network guided by ASYMCA preschool teachers that provides parents of toddlers from 18 months to 5 years old with tools that enable them to begin and sustain their young child’s educational development.
