The Artist Says:

I have always been fascinated with the way light interacts with objects.


I have always been fascinated by the way light interacts with objects. I look for interesting objects and arrange them to achieve the interplay of light and shadow. The goal of my work is to elevate simple objects into dramatic artistic statements.
I began drawing as soon as I could hold a crayon. I couldn't take notes in school because I would begin to draw and inevitably stop focusing on the teacher.
I started oil painting in my mid twenties and began taking workshops from artists whose work I admired. I learned to paint in classes of great artists who were all great teachers as well. They include; Gregg Kreutz, Joan Potter, Kim English, Kenn Erroll Backhaus, and David Cheifetz.
I am a signature member of the Oil Painters of America, and have shown in numerous national and regional juried exhibitions.
My wife Linda Volrath, also an artist, and I met while painting in New Mexico, and now reside in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.
