Iíve studied art over the years with Maryland and Virginia master painters including Phil Metzger, Edwin Ahlstrom, Walt Bartman, Robert Liberace, and Nancy Tankersley. The influence I gained from these artists range from expressive color and composition to drawing draftsmanship and classical technique. Earlier in my career, I attended the University of Michigan, the Corcoran School, Montgomery College, and the Alexandria Art League. Iíve been juried into the National Gallery of Art Copyist Program. This is a time honored tradition of painting from masterworks. Iíve participated in many exhibitions and several galleries, winning first place and honorable mention awards.
Iím an active member of the Working Artist Forum and the St. Michaels Art League. Iím looking forward to participating in the 2021 Easton Plein Air Festival as a juried Local Color participant as well as the 50th Anniversary of the Waterfowl Festival in November 2021.
Iím interested in creating expressive portraits and landscape paintings that move beyond capturing a likeness to telling a story that has universal appeal.
