Artist Statement

With my mind, my hands, and my heart I desire to use the giftedness given me to create art which inspires and moves us all to enjoy life in a much fuller way.

Artist Bio

My story starts in Wilmington, Delaware where I was raised in a family that greatly appreciated art and learned to use my artistic ability to see what I was gifted in doing.  From there I went to college and received a degree at Towson University with a focus on painting.

I found my true love and friend in college, married her, and stayed in the Baltimore metro area. From Maryland I have helped raise a family of four and continue to create paintings and learn what it means to be a artist business man.

 

I have many passions that I like to paint but the most prevalent is the ocean and its surroundings. I think this has great spiritual meaning to life in general and I try to portray it through my paintings. My style leans towards impressionism to modern art with color and motion to bring out an experience of visual beauty.

As a creator I want my paintings to be stories that inspire, encourage, and bring an emotional experience in the beauty that one sees. My desire is to communicate a deeper meaning to living from my own personal touch. My hope is that what I make will bring a new and refreshing site to your daily walk.
