The artist has loved painting since he was old enough to hold a paint brush. He was introduced to silkscreen printing in his ninth grade art class and that became his passion along with painting in oil and acrylic for more than four decades. In 2019 he began experimenting with how his work could be created in Photoshop; using digital paintbrushes and a wide format printer. Embracing this new technique, he has been able to create new work in the identical style he has enjoyed for years but without the exposure to toxic inks and solvents.
After graduating from the School of Art at VCU in Richmond, he lost no time getting his career underway. In 1975, he and his wife purchased a home in the historic community of Washington Grove, Maryland, where he designed and built the studio where he works today. Early on, the artist took his brightly colorful original artwork to the streets. Since 1972 he has been showing and selling his work at arts festivals throughout the country, through his website, and by creating a wide variety of custom work for interior designers, architects and individuals.
His work is avidly collected and has been included in dozens of museum and corporate collections on paper, including The Virginia Museum in Richmond, The Chrysler Museum in Norfolk, The Baltimore Museum and the Taubman Museum in Roanoke, Virginia.
