     I have been drawing and painting my entire life and now will devote all my energies to painting. For thirty-three years I have supported my wife and three children as an employee of the United States Postal Service. Upon retiring as Postmaster of Willard North Carolina, I will devote myself to painting full time.

     I paint using oils, the traditional medium of artists for hundreds of years. The masters of painting have achieved an infinite range of effects with oil paint. They have created lasting images of beauty that have endured as historical documents as well as insights into the artist's vision, place and time. I paint in the "impressionistic" style which conveys a heightened sense of color and a looseness which is more reflective of my own personality and vision. Impressionism is also a lot more fun too.

     Some of my paintings are done "plein aire", which simply means painted quickly, outside on location. I also paint in my studio using photographs as references. Beach and coastal scenes as well as locations in and around the beautiful city of Wilmington are sources of inspiration. Other subjects I paint are residential homes on commission and portraits of pets, boats, and people.
