I capture the seasonal changes of the landscape through my plein air paintings. My enthusiasm for plein air takes me outside to paint fields, marshes, farms, rivers and bays wherever I travel. My interest in art started with comic book illustration at an early age. It was while studying for my BFA at Maryland Institute College of Art that an interest in oil painting emerged. Art has always been a vocation for me – as a portrait and caricature artist in Ocean City during college, art director at a sign company, teacher and freelance court illustrator.
