 Artist County

I’m a lifelong artist whose work stresses realism and usually emphasizes how contrasting light and shadow define a subject and create a mood. I often focus on local, Chester County subjects, especially those that have a historical focus, and my work frequently incorporates animals in their natural surroundings. My preferred media are acrylic and pastel, although I sometimes stray into oil. I’m a member of Flying Colors, the Delaware Valley Art League and the Chester County Art Association, and I exhibit in a number of area shows, including the Yellow Springs, Malvern Retreat House and Art Ability shows.
