Welcome and thanks for visiting my site. I am excited to present select works on Fine Art American for your enjoyment.
I enjoy painting landscapes, religious scenes, portraits, and figures in oil, acrylic and sometimes in watercolor. I most enjoy painting scenes that have a spiritual element or subject matter embedded in them, either in the details or in symbolic reference. I am interested in the growth of the human spirit and its journey and that is the focus of my favorite works.
I appreciate all forms of art from the action and emotion of German expressionism, the spiritual reverence exuded in Italian renaissance, the light and color in Impressionism, to the motion in Futurism. My expeditions into the High Sierras inspired a reverence for the mastery of the Hudson River School of landscape artists. I enjoyed figure drawing in college frequently due to the availability of school sponsored figure drawing sessions. It is my intention to return to the discipline again soon.
I studied history of art and graphic and commercial art and obtained a BA in Advertising/Marketing and an Associates in Graphic and Commercial art, as well as a BS in Aerospace engineering. I have spent the last 20 or so years engrossed in a career in the Aerospace Defense contracting business, where I have met some wonderful space artists extraordinaire!
