Artist Bio

I’m a non-professional artist, but a lifelong student of many forms of artistic expression. I come from a family with illustrators, story board artists and art school deans, so it sort of runs in the blood. I have pretty much settled on oil painting and - just for fun- drinking and drawing with the Newburyport group monthly. Mostly drawing.

This current show is pretty typical in terms of subject matter: realistic paintings of many different subjects (landscapes, seascapes, portraits, urban vistas and the like).

In addition to art, I spent 33 years as an ER doctor, stints working on the Navajo reservation, in Uganda, Haiti, Chiapas Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, Costa Rica, and Mississippi. All of which was very interesting and satisfying. Hope you enjoy the show.
