About

I am an artist living and working in Western Massachusetts. I do works from imagination and life, including landscapes in oils and watercolor, candid cafe sketches in ink, and figure and portrait drawings.


I'll be using this site to post my own artwork, collect various pieces I've written on art-related topics, show off gadgets I've contrived to aid in the making of artwork, and provide a download for Hor:ratio, my pocket compositional tool and guide to proportional systems.

Much of what appears here was originally posted at The Sketching Forum, a wonderful community of sketchers started by Russ Stutler and moderated by me since 2018.

I attended the Worcester Art Museum School, the Boston Museum School, Mass Art Evening School, and studied drawing and painting extensively with Paul Rahilly.
