Fine Arts & Graphics

I paint in oil on canvas, my images are colorful and mainly depict scenes from Virginia and the East Coast.  I primarily like to use thick paint in certain areas to emphasize elements of the painting.  

Although by trade I was a Graphic Designer, and had formal training in Visual Communications from Northeastern University, I am primarily self-taught in oil painting, I feel I have been blessed with an eye to paint pleasing, peaceful scenes we can all relate to. I have been painting for over 40 years primarily in oils and watercolors.

I was born and raised in the Panama Canal Zone and am fluent in English and Spanish. I am also a proud veteran of the United States Navy. Upon honorably discharged from the military, I focused on studies and career in Graphic Designs in support of the US Government for 30 plus years, retiring in 2013. 

For the last seven years I have participated displaying and selling artwork at art festival events throughout Virginia.
