My Story

Ten years ago I took a deep breath and stepped away from a successful career as a computer programmer to paint full time. Since that big move, I’ve made over 1000 paintings, and when possible I paint every single day with a zeal and passion to produce the very finest work for my collectors.

My focus is on the common, everyday objects we have all around us, transforming them into art that celebrates mood, drama, and sometimes simple humor.

I’ve shown pieces in numerous galleries throughout the US, been featured in several international art publications, and placed paintings in about 500 collections worldwide, but my biggest satisfaction remains the look on an art lover’s face when they deeply connect with one of my pieces and truly “get it”.

I spend my days looking around me to find inspiration for new work that will move and delight those who love my paintings. I hope you enjoy them as well – let me know if you did!

Finding my work

This website is the primary venue for seeing my work, and, if you are a collector, acquiring a painting from me. On my collectors’ page, I have a number of resources that describe the process of adding one of my works to your collection. I have made it as simple as possible to purchase art from me online, and if you have any questions about it, I would love to talk to you!

Annual Exhibits

Twice a year, in the spring and the fall, I participate in a major 3-day arts festival just West of Boston. I typically display about 50 paintings and am visited by collectors from around New England and beyond. The next show is scheduled for November 17-19, 2017. As this date approaches I will share more specifics.
