Biography


I've been a working artist my entire adult life, starting as a painter, followed by years as a corporate Art Director. I stepped away from the corporate world in the mid 1980's to work as a full time artist. Since then, I've had numerous one man shows in Virginia and Pennsylvania.
 
My watercolor and acrylic paintings have been exhibited in solo gallery shows as well as numerous juried group exhibitions. I'm a former member of the Associated Artists of Pittsburgh and the Pittsburgh Watercolor Society. My paintings are in collections across the US and in Europe.
 
I've also written and drawn several comic strips, including Machine Head, Father Flood, and Sacred Cows. In the 1980's he was a nationally syndicated political cartoonist for Associated Features.

This is a highly spiritual series meant to affirm the worth of everyone's life without judgment. Spyder is available for Everyday Saints style commissioned portraits. Note that these are paintings on canvas, not works of stained glass.
