About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Painter
Location Atlanta, Georgia, United States
Introduction An Atlanta native, I lived in northern California in the sixties, worked in front of the camera in Europe in the seventies, and earned my living as a writer for twenty plus years. As a contemporary realist painter, I'm fascinated by the skin of the world, the bounce and skitter of light on textures, and the push and pull of shadows on form. See my finished work on my website, and follow my works in progress here. I currently live 1.4 miles from the house I grew up in.
Interests dawn light, The New Yorker, writing, painters of the northern renaissance, comics Mutts and Overboard, roses, hydrangeas, lilies, naps, tomatoes with basil, I'm pro-spaniel, and a constant reader. I also pause frequently to admire my children and spouse
