As an architectural illustrator for over forty-five years, I have provided a national clientele of distinguished architects with striking & award-winning illustrations of projects around the world.
During these professional years, I have also developed my watercolor painting to an accomplished level, and capture urban scenes, landscapes, homes, and portraits in a plein air, or a direct, alla prima, colorist style. I’ve been a long-standing signature member of the New England Watercolor Society (N.E.W.S.) Boston, and elected member of the Salmagundi Club of New York, as well as exhibiting member and supporter of local Art Associations, and regularly participate in national plein air events. My work is also represented in select galleries, and many collectors around the country have acquired or commissioned distinctive watercolors. I’m continually inspired by the effortless, masterful works of watercolorists from many eras and cultures, particularly Sargent, Homer, Turner, Prendergast, Wyeth, Hiroshi, Zorn and fellow Winthrop native John Whorf. I am further inspired from my seminars with notable artists, authors and friends – Charles Reid, Jeanne Dobie, Don Andrews, and Carleton Plummer. Together with my architectural drawing discipline, all my watercolor skills and experience have helped me in developing a versatile painting style. In seeking arresting views of the everyday, those flash moments which transform ordinary subjects into fluid watercolor impressions, I attempt to capture some beauty.
