overview

“My style is a combination of impressionism and realism with an emphasis on showing bold and numerous brush strokes in my oils. You will see this more in my figurative work than my landscapes. Moving back and forth from oil to watercolor is always interesting as the two mediums are totally different. I am now working with figurative subject matter in addition to my landscapes. I believe that an artist will stagnate if he or she does not constantly explore new things.”

about the artist

Born in Connecticut, educated at the University of New Hampshire, and lived in Vermont for 20 years before moving to South Carolina, I am an artist who discovered his calling to art at a late age. My mother was an artist and I am distantly related to George Catlin, the famous American Indian artist, so I guess paint runs in my veins.

I educated myself in the field of art by reading countless art books and magazines and drew and paintied for hours on end day after day. The impressionists have always been my favorite although I don’t restrict my interest to only one style of painting. I continue my education by visiting galleries that represent some of America’s top artists and study their work closely.
