Biography 

My work career began at a small ad agency in Fort Worth, Texas as an art director. Since 1995, I’ve been self-employed as a graphic and web designer, currently as owner of Oxygen Design in Norwalk, Connecticut.

In 2011, I began painting – with Carmen Lund at the Silvermine Arts Center, where I received the Watercolor Award in that year’s Student Exhibition. At Silvermine, I also studied drawing with Will Nathans and painting with David Dunlop, and exhibited and sold work in the school’s “Signed, Sealed and Delivered” show. After Silvermine, I started taking watercolor classes with Christy Gallagher at the Rowayton Arts Center. 

Since 2012 I’ve taken part in ongoing workshops with noted watercolor master David Dewey in Owls Head, Maine (plein aire), and in 2014, with Charles Reid.

I live and work in a restored 1915 Arts and Crafts house on the shore of Norwalk harbor in Connecticut.
