Biography


Artist's Statement
I think art is about emotion; without this the artwork is lifeless.  Art should also be well thought out and should offer a unique perspective or leave the viewer wondering.  Finally, there should be a solid technical element, that of a masterfully painted picture by only the artist's hand. 
 
Curriculum Vitae
Robert grew up in Diamond Bar California, where he studied painting with a local artist.  Robert attended the University of California, Irvine and then joined the US Navy.  After completing flight training, Robert completed a 23 year career as a Naval Flight Officer while concurrently pursuing fine art and illustration.  Robert was able to attend the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts for a year focusing on academic foundation (life drawing, perspective, color, life painting, etc) and portraiture.  He continues to experiment with new mediums and subject matter.
