Artist Statement

I am primarily an oil painter, watercolorist, and photographer although I enjoy working in many other media. I especially enjoy painting lighthouses and landscapes with an emphasis on the Yosemite Valley.
I was born in Columbus, Ohio, raised in Ojai, California and spent 26 years in the United States Navy. I served all over the country including California, Willow Grove, Pennsylvainia, New Orleans, Louisiana, and Quincy, Massachusetts. I had the privilege of retiring on the deck of the USS Constitution.
I have attended many different colleges over the years including The Columbus College of Art and Design and The Academy of Art College in San Francisco. I have attended many other Junior Colleges.
Exploring different painting styles and subjects is an ever growing and learning process. As an artist I try different things enjoying the possibilities of creating art as an idea progresses. I don't concentrate on a style, rather I explore different possibilities and then allow what I have accomplished to define my style.
I paint in my home studio in Lockport, New York where I have a florida room with many windows for great lighting and a lot of space to work on many paintings at a time.
