BIO: When I was a young boy, my family moved from our hometown of Baton Rouge, LA to Aruba. Being exposed to the island’s unique beauty and culture at such an early age had a profound effect on me, which I began to express through drawing and working with modeling clay. It was then that art chose me.
Years later, back in Baton Rouge, throughout school and into college at the University of Southern Louisiana, I continued drawing and taught myself to use pastels.
Then I joined the navy to see the world. Shipboard life did not allow me to paint, so I became proficient at ballpoint pen drawing.
After naval service, I attended Ringling School of Art in Sarasota, FL. Sarasota became my chosen hometown and for 25 years of so I worked in advertising art and as an architectural illustrator and mural painter. I painted for myself after hours and on weekends.
I have done work for Disney, Cunard Lines, Chris-Craft, U.S. Homes, Taylor-Woodrow and Harcourt Brace, as well as many private commissions. My work is on the Island of Anguilla’s $1.00 postage stamp, and in the collections of José Feliciano, Gordon Lightfoot, and the Seafood Industry Museum in Biloxi, MS. It has sold nationally and internationally. My graphics have been published in Playboy Magazine. I am a signature member of the American Society of Marine Artists (ASMA).
Now retired from the advertising world, I am able to paint full-time. My wife, my dog and I share a happy home.
