“So many times the most beautiful things to be seen are right before our eyes. However, these potential masterepieces, these places and things in ordinary life, often go overlooked. Whether it be the beauty of nature seen in a cypress swamp in the autumn, the strength of horses galloping through the desert, or mans best friend and his buddy fishing together. Such grace and beauty in all forms deserves recognition. Capturing these moments in time is a challenge for any artist. As an artist, I enjoy the thrill of portraying these moments on canvas. As you enjoy this exhibit and visit my online gallery, I hope you will find, as I have that beauty takes many forms and is undeniable even in the most ordinary of subjects.”
I was born in Wilmington, Delaware and attended Wilmington public schools. As a child, I developed an interest in art and attended the Delaware Art Museum’s Children’s Program on Saturday mornings. Many wonderful artists in the Wilmington area would volunteer their time and share their talents. After completing my formal education, I graduated from the Famous Artists School of Commercial Art and Illustration, Westport, Connecticut in 1960. However, I put down the ‘brush’ and pursued a career in banking in the metropolitan Philadelphia area, where I remained for 37 years. Taking early retirement from the corporate world, my wife, Ruthann, and I moved to Long Neck, Delaware in 2000. There, I picked up the ‘brush’ once again, returning to my childhood hobby. After receiving a positive critique of some of my initial work from a local artist, I began to enthusiastically pursue this “abandoned” hobby again. Presently, much of my work on canvas is from life’s early memories and local areas of interest in Wilmington and Sussex County. I am currently Past President of the Millsboro Art League, Millsboro, a member of the Milton Arts Guild, Milton, and the Rehoboth Art League, Rehoboth Beach and East Coast Artists on line. Most of my recent work is on displayed at the Millsboro Art League and the Rehoboth Art League.
