I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from East Carolina University in 1976 while majoring in graphic design and illustration. I worked for a marketing agency in Charlotte, North Carolina where I developed my marketing contacts and skills. The major clients I created art for include McDonald's, NAPA Auto Parts and Paramount's Carowinds Theme Park. I continued to pursue a fine arts career, developing a series of styles which have begun to receive critical acclaim as well as commercial success.

My paintings were accepted to Capricorn Galleries in Washington, DC due to the recommendation by a curator at the National Museum of American Art. This led to representation by Joe DeMers Gallery and Red Piano Gallery in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, Austin Gallery in Scottsdale, Arizona, Design Center Gallery in Denver, Colorado and S.E. Feinman Fine Arts Gallery in the Soho art district in New York City. Several showings in the Los Angeles ArtExpo, New York City Expo and the Grand National Exhibition were instrumental in my acceptance to Earth Art, an international gallery in Tokyo, Japan.

Paintings are now finding their way into notable collections in the United States and Japan including the Phil Desind Collection in Washington DC, the corporate collections of Wachovia Bank and Bank of America, and the private collection of President and Mrs. Jimmy Carter. I’m currently represented by Singulart, an online fine art gallery, the largest online gallery in Europe.
