I now live and work in Gloucester, Virginia, where I built a new studio.

About Me

I could be described as a sigma, introvert, dyslexic. I paint and draw because I enjoy creating art.

I was born in the town of Framingham, Massachusetts September 21, 1948 and I am seventy-three.

My Mother, two brothers and I moved around a lot after she left my father in 1959. 

I ended up in Blackstone, Massachusetts. In 2015 I moved to Gloucester Virginia.

Due to having little money my only source of art education was practices. This web site is what I use to 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 and 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.

I love paint talk so I made a  "Contact Me Here" section above.
