One of the great things about art is its ability to inspire and move us. This is what I work toward with my paintings. To feel the presence of the individual in a beautiful portrait. To smell the bakery come to life on the streets of the old neighborhood. A good painting will render a moment timeless.I work from my home studio in Cleveland Heights, Ohio. I love it here. I am inspired by the people I meet and the street corners and wooded paths where I paint. I do live with some art critics, though. My lovely wife, Nicole, and my three young children make sure to give their approval before the painting gets a frame.
