Painting and drawing is something I have always enjoyed,
I was born in the town of Framingham, Massachusetts September 21, 1948 and I am seventy-two now.
My family moved around a lot when I was a boy.
I ended up in Blackstone, Massachusetts and in 2015 I moved to Gloucester Virginia.
The only source of art education for me was practices. I show some of my work, raw and in progress just as it comes out, the good, the bad and the ugly.
Two of my mentors are, John Singer Sargent and John Singleton Copley. Copley, was born in Boston, Massachusetts July 3, 1738. Most famous for Portraiture he was self-taught. Learning this encouraged me to work solo.
My preferences are portrait painting, still life and landscapes, though I enjoyed working with many other subjects and mediums. Oil paint is my preferred medium, but I also enjoy working with watercolor, charcoal, graphite, pen and ink and pastels.
