ACalling to the Palate

I feel my paintings are little snippets of my life. Each artwork takes a little piece of my soul and endless effort that I pour into every piece. My artwork’s are inspired by the look of nature; it’s subtle tones and complex shapes. Along with my faith and a strong family support, this is what completes the process for me.  I take refuge in the making of my art. It's my intention to create for the viewer a connection to view the world and dreams through my eye's. To try to see everyday objects, people, colors that many just passed by, without ever really stopping to absorb it’s natural beauty. 

Cape Cod, Massachusetts has been my native home for many wonderful years with my loving wife and family.  As a breeding ground for artists, I've let in the light of the Cape and let it be my painter's guide. In addition to such an influential art community, my formal art education started at the Massachusetts School of Art and Design.  I started learning to render figures and objects from life. 

Later, I continued my education at Rhode Island School of Design, studying  Natural Science Illustration.  Independently, I have joined many workshop’s by notable art instructors's Bernard Chaet ,John Stobart, Robert Liberace , Casey Baugh, Jeremy Lipking and many others. Also lectures and personally talk's with Jia Lu, Chuck Close, Dennis Hopper, Alex Katz, Enda Hibel, Polly Starr Thayer and so many other artist.
