12X12’, painting at Coquina Beach Park

12X12’, painting at Coquina Beach Park

I wish I knew enough about palms to guess how old these two are. They’ve (obviously) bent in the wind and are guarding the inlet into Sarasota Bay. The Bay, I recently learned, is only about four feet deep and full of grasslands and wildlife.

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 work 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.

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.
Thank you for your interest!
