I am graduate of The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, Philadelphia, PA. Following my education, I was employed as a billboard artist for outdoor advertisers in the Philadelphia area for more than twenty-five years. I began showing my own work following a move with my wife and children to Cape May, NJ in 1995. My work has been shown locally and in several shows at the FAN Gallery in Philadelphia. By invitation, I have also participated in the John Peto Museum International Juried Art Exhibitions.
I paint a variety of subjects, both indoors and out, using oils and watercolors, depending on the subject and location. I work in both mediums and have developed techniques for capturing the unique atmospheric conditions of the seashore, the play of sunlight and shadows cast by the intricate details of Cape May’s Victorian architecture, and the simple essence of the objects I choose for my still life paintings with the intent of provoking senses of the smells and textures of the objects.
