I have painted all of my adult life, receiving a Bachelor’s degree in Studio Art from the University of Maryland in 1973, and a Master of Fine Arts in Painting from the Catholic University of America in 1977. At Catholic, I was fortunate to study with John Winslow.
I tend to work in series of paintings sharing a common motif that I can explore and expand upon. I have been pursuing some of these series for decades. Their themes combine both the exploration of visual elements and may share a common subject or narrative aspect as well.
A common element in several of these series is the exploration of the effects of light, particularly as it plays upon and through water or other reflective and transparent surfaces. I am also interested in recreating a shared experience of our time and culture with the viewer. My wife, Kathy, and I relocated from Silver Spring, Maryland, to Tidewater, Virginia, in late 2005; and are delighted with our life in these slower-paced, scenic, and hospitable environs.
