I am a self taught artist who started painting 16 years ago at my wife's suggestion. I sold my first painting, (small, 5" x 7") and have been painting ever since. I am a juried member of the Cape Cod Art Association, Yarmouth Art Guild, and Chatham Creative Arts. I do many summer outdoor shows up and down the Cape and have won several awards for my work in Cape Cod juried shows. Several times, I have painted with the Monday Night Painters of Eastham, a well know group of established artists. Many people who see my work tell me they wish they saw things the way I see them. I do not know how they see them, but I view my world through passionate eyes. I do believe that what I see is not as important as what you see which is why I call my artwork 'Eye of the Beholder.' Your eyes are the gateway to your own soul that resonates where the beauty and the connection truly is.
