I am an American artist borne in Monterey, California and I grew up in a military family. I have lived and traveled all over the United States and the world and the experience with other peoples and cultures has given me a rich and positive perspective as an artist. I'm primarily a self-taught artist with some formal advanced art training. I have a BS degree from Excelsior College, Albany NY and I have studied under some of the world's finest artists.  I specialize in watercolor and colored pencil art pieces and I am a professional member of the International Guild of Realism and a signature member of the Colored Pencil Society of America. I have had art pieces juried into their prestigious annual international exhibitions every year that I have been a member.  I have also been published regularly in Ann Kullberg's "Color" Magazine and her popular annual "CP Treasures Vol. III and IV", as well as "Colored Pencil Magazine". I've also been published in the "2018 Richeson 75 Still Life and Floral International Exhibition" as a finalist.  I live a quiet life in Prince George, Virginia as a Magistrate for the Commonwealth with my wife Lorie, my son Chris, my granddaughter Josie and our little dog Raylan.

 

​    My primary subjects are still life and some human and animal portraiture. I have a great interest in realism and creating my pieces with great contrasts between light and dark color and tones. I enjoy conveying its balance and how these visionary qualities complement each other...like the "Yin and Yang".  I draw and paint with a heavy hand but with rich, deep color pallets.  My subjects are balanced and precise and I tend to favor reflection, fire and objects that are simple but interesting. It’s important for me to create pieces from the world around us that the observer can draw dramatic perspective and positive emotion from and walk away inspired by the experience.
