my formal art training at the Cleveland Institute of Art and the Cooper
School of Art where I majored in illustration. I also studied portraiture,
photography, life drawing and art production.
I have been painting wildlife and portraits for over
35 years and have found that the success of a painting is directly related
to the intimacy you experience with your subject. When painting
a wolf, studding his features, movements, his personality and then try
to capture them in my painting . This would be the same for any
other wildlife. Whether it is an eagle, lion, gorilla, tiger, horse,
or even a cow. My fantasy paintings of castles and fairies have elements
that were studied in reality. Some of my favorite painting have been
of old fence posts, barns, churches or just a tree that has lived through
so much history.
The reproductions I have of my paintings are all signed, numbered limited
edition. I do all of my own printing to maintain a faithful representation
of the original art. This allows me complete control which until
a few years ago was only a dream. To be able to print on canvas and
have the reproduction have the same look as the original has made it
possible for many more people to own my work.
I hope you enjoy your
I also do web site design if interested send me an email.
