What a day for a daydream. Boat on dock; it's there every day. 

Background:

Art is my life. From the first art project I can remember (making a Christmas Nativity scene in grade school that overshadowed the resident artist) art has always been what brings me the greatest satisfaction. Without art, I am not who I am. 

I am now working full time as a fine artist, a dream that I've pursued for as long as I remember. Landscapes engage and challenge me, and I have a very soft spot for animals.

My artwork has been featured at the world renowned TED (Technology, Education and Design) conference (TED MED in San Diego, on huge high definition screens throughout the exhibition center). I recently won the nationally acclaimed ArtInPlace competition in Virginia which placed a 12' X 24' mural on aluminum of my work, now seen by thousands of commuters daily. 

Two museums currently house my art: The William H. Benton Museum in Connecticut, and The LLoyd Museum in Cincinnati, Ohio. It was a great honor to be asked to exhibit and I continue to add to their collections. Speaking of collections, my work is a part of hundreds of private collections worldwide.

As a passionate defender of Artist's Rights, I have traveled to Washington, DC to meet with Senators and members of Congress as they debated the Orphan Works law (an attempt to "orphan" copyrighted artwork by separating the creator from their work) which we defeated. In addition, as a member of the American Society of Illustrator's Partnership, I continue to work to secure reprographic royalty streams from the ongoing publication of artist's works.

In the summer, the oaks look bigger then ever, and this one is just plain massive. It has the most interesting branches and patina.

"Liquid Gladiolus 2.0" Auction, Twomey

I'm in a new home in Asheville, NC, and this spring and summer has been a revelation. There are things popping up in the garden I don't even know the name of. However, I recognized the gladiolus immediately, and have been painting them ever since. They're fading now as the coneflowers and daylillies emerge, but the reds lasted long enough for another go-around.

Please click HERE to take part in the auction. This original oil in 8 X 10" on archival linen board, ready to frame.

I painted this from life about two weeks ago. It was a quiet, lovely day. A friend and I stood at the Biltmore Boat House, looking out over the pond and imagining how it looked and felt to the Vanderbilts. This little island jutted out into the pond just in front of me and I loved the tree and leaf patterns. 

The painting is 10H" X 8W" on archival linen board.

Spring is irresistible. The light, warming, buds, birds - all for the taking. So I took.

I'm painting real things from my real life. This practice slows me down, is calming, creative and allows time to absorb the beauty in the world. Dog walks everyday put me in contact with places and things I wouldn't ordinarily pay much attention to, which is a very good thing. I'm selling my work on eBay because it's a trusted place for transactions like this, and because it offers everyone an equal opportunity to purchase my work.


The Artist

Art is my life. From the first art project I can remember (making a Christmas Nativity scene in grade school that overshadowed the resident artist) art has always been what brings me the greatest satisfaction. Without art, I am not who I am.

I have studied with some of the greatest artistic and scientific minds in the world: fellow medical illustrators. Leonardo da Vinci is considered the first medical illustrator, and his knowledge, technical abilities and deep curiosity are benchmarks for the field.

As a Board Certified Medical Illustrator, I have had the privilege to know and learn directly from some of the most extraordinarily talented, smart and influential visionaries living today.  Fine art influencers include Georgia O'Keefe, Leonardo da Vinci, Rembrandt and Degas. I look to their struggles and triumphs, and their unflinching persistence.
