Hometown: Centreville, MD

While growing up in rural Pennsylvania in the early 80’s, I discovered I had a natural ability to draw and transform images in my mind to pen and paper. My abstract pieces were often random and complex in nature, with many sharp angles and contrasting shadows, creating a visual feast.

 

After my academic studies, I joined the US Navy where my passion for drawing continued. I created many military murals and was given the honor of designing a decommissioning patch. I continued to pursue the arts, developing my own style and technique for drawing animals, trees, and people that gave them a truly lifelike feel.

 

Being a nature lover, I began to transform local wildlife into my stunning works on display now. My love for birds of prey in particular is evident in the extraordinary and visually appealing three-dimensional effects in the eyes and textures of my pieces that is unrivaled.

 

I live in Centreville, MD, with my wife and children and create my work in our home art studio.
