Born and raised in small-town USA (Clarion, PA) at the age of 13 I worked in a local summer-stock theater, fell in love with theater set design and proceeded to make a career of painting sets, backdrops, etc. from Maine to Wisconsin to New Hampshire and finally landing in Delaware and Philadelphia area.
Fast forward 25 years. I found myself unexpectedly unemployed in December 2013. I’d often dreamed of living a more creative life. Suddenly the opportunity presented itself with a bang!! With the love and support of family and friends, I launched a new career. Creating ART full time. Painting in oils is what I love to do. I began painting en plein air(outdoors) in spring 2014 and haven’t stopped. There is nothing like painting on the spot and capturing the essence and light of the scene around you. Urban landscapes are my favorite subject.
As for drawing my favorite subject is the figure. I enjoy gestural and expressive drawing in charcoal, conte’ crayon and pastel for some color.
I hope you enjoy my art work here and will come visit often. Please subscribe to my newsletter to keep posted on upcoming and behind the scenes news.
ENJOY! And feel free to contact me with and questions.
