About Me

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.
