As a resident of Baltimore, it is inevitable that many of my landscape paintings will be of this area. I am fortunate that it offers such a diverse set of subjects, from the rugged industrial zones, to the waterfront, to the pastoral hinterland.


I have had the opportunity to visit Italy several times. As a painter I am drawn to its diverse landscapes, including its rugged mountains, its marvelous coastlines, and its abundance of ruins.

American West

My daughter has become a long-term resident of Colorado, so I have many opportunities to enjoy the beauty and majesty of the Rocky Mountains. Additionally, one cannot resist visiting (and revisiting) the immense splendor and variety of the American southwest.


I am fascinated by cities, old and new. During my travels in recent years, I have had opportunities to diversify the subject, ranging from the intense complexity and expanse of New York to the ancient ruins of Paestum.

Museum Collections

I have been studying artwork diverse in time and geography. I expressed this initially by painting representations of ancient Roman sculpture an frescoes of Renaissance Italy. More recently, I also became fascinated with images of India, the far east and ancient America. Eventually, the paintings of sculpture grew into more complex original arrangements composed in multi-media, including manipulated photographic prints from images of various cultures.

Figures in Interiors

When confronting the figure in interiors one has the opportunity to orchestrate placement, color and texture. But one also faces the inherent expectation of the viewer to communicate with the psychology of the figure(s) being represented--whether he or she is aware of the viewer. This source of communication and tension is an added dimension which repeatedly draws my interests.
