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.
