Artist Statement:

As a commercial artist, designer, and retired advertising executive…I’ve spent the past 40 years honing my skills in the visual arts.

Because I grew up on and in the water and have been a lifelong sailor, my subject is often nautical or water related. Lately though, I have found myself painting different subjects. I am working on a series of paintings from a long road trip through the South and West and it is hard to find a lot of water in Arizona. I am painting kids, baseball and airports and my style is becoming less illustrational and more simplistic with a bolder use of color. Go figure.

Philosophically, I can only hope that my art pleases your eye, stimulates your mind and heart, and shows you our world through my eyes. Please enjoy it!
