CONTEMPORARY LANDSCAPES IN OIL PASTEL
I live and work in a former cigar factory in Souderton PA with my wife Heather and our dog Crusher. We took it from a rough dirty shell and turned it into a warm inviting space full of art. Most of my work is done in oil pastels: messy, rich, and a unique blend of drawing & painting. I also paint in oils and draw in ink. Stop in to check out my workspace and lots of paintings of skies, trees, rolling fields, barns, and industrial sites. I like to focus on the everyday scene that might go overlooked but is totally worth acknowledging as a painting.
I want to bring the viewer into the moment when inspiration struck. Nothing makes me happier than when a collector tells me they still love the painting they got from me 6 months, 2 years, a decade, or more ago.
Heather and I opened Exhibit B Gallery in late 2016 where we bring art to the community as well as support more than 20 additional artists. Operating the gallery has been a rewarding and challenging experience like no other.
