About the Artist

I presently live and work in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware having retired here from the D.C. area.

My work is very detail oriented. This no doubt reflects my background as an engineer. I am fascinated by complex shadows and reflections which are often a central characteristic of my work. My goal is to create hyper-realistic paintings that accurately reflect scenes as I see or imagine them.

Art has been a life long passion. I was raised in a home adorned with the works of my artist mother and grandmother. Now I draw inspiration from a variety of sources and do not turn away from any interesting subject. However, a primary source of my subject matter centers on interesting places I have visited.

My philosophy is that art needs to reflect ones current thoughts and interests. With this in mind, my art continues to evolve in style, media, and subject matter while remaining true to realism.

I started painting in watercolors as reflected in the choice of the name or this website. Over time, I dabbled in acrylics and now I am focusing primarily on oils. Over the past several years, I have become quite interested in the painting techniques of the old masters. You will find some of my efforts showing in the "Classical Realism" section. These were all done with centuries old techniques as I understand them.

I hope you enjoy your visit to my website.
