Since moving to Hawai’i in 2006, Bob has been an ardent practitioner of Plein Air painting, the art of painting directly from nature 'in the open air’. Working alone and with the Plein Air Artists of Hawai’i Island (PAAOHI), he has focused on capturing the light, energy, and beauty of the varied and stunning landscapes of the Big Island of Hawai'i.
For the past 27 years, Bob has been one of the premier practitioners of the art of scrimshaw. After graduation from Pratt Institute in 1978, Bob pursued a career as an art director/graphic designer in Manhattan. In 1985 a friend living on Nantucket sent him a scrimshaw kit as a gift, and this proved to be a major turning point in his career. He fell in love with the art form, and after several years working by day as an art director and nights working on scrimshaw, he quit his ‘day job’ and went into scrimshaw and marine art as a full-time career. Since then his unique approach to and appreciation for the traditions of scrimshaw have won him accolades from collectors, gallery directors and artists alike. His work is in private and corporate collections around the world. Bob has won the prestigious Rudolph J. Schaefer Maritime Heritage Award, given each year at the Mystic International Marine Art Exhibition, a record three times.
