Selected by the Wanamaker Fine Art Gallery as their Philadelphia Tercentenary artist, I paint in the tradition of the masters.  With their refined techniques, I paint only by natural light to achieve true color; using traditional oil on linen canvas, I work to capture the uniqueness of the subject in a time honored medium.
The great grandson of a 19th century artist and the the son of an English war bride and an American soldier, I was born in Philadelphia but traveled to England whenever possible.  My exposure to "old grandeur and new world" gave me the appreciation and desire to capture a rapidly changing world with a unique yet reminiscent style.  
Hoping to preserve "today" for "tomorrow" with a centuries old medium my subjects have included, Independence Hall, Bryn Athyn Cathedral, Valley Forge, Valley Green, Mystic Seaport, Salisbury Cathedral, Mont St Michel, Charleston SC, Elfreth's Alley, scenes from Paris, Philadelphia, Normandy and England, as well as various architectural subjects here and abroad.  In addition to being the Wanamaker Tercentenary artist I have been a featured artist in area shows as well as having numerous one man shows throughout the Delaware Valley.  My work has appeared in a number of galleries, and has won awards in area group shows.  I work full time from my studio painting both commissioned and non-commissioned traditional oils.   
I also create limited edition giclee prints made in a direct process from my original paintings.  This captures the glow of the oil and texture of the canvas reflecting the vibrance of an old world technique.  My prints have been sold through such places as the historic Hereford Inlet Light, Daylesford Abbey Art Show, Immaculata University Art Show,  Elfreth's Alley Association, Tuckerton Seaport and other shows in the area, and from my website.
