Welcome to my art and photograph website. I was born and raised on the east end of Long Island, NY, in a small town named Shoreham, along the beach on Long Islands north shore. The Long Island Sound, the Atlantic ocean, the bays and beaches, and the Hamptons are a photographers dream, and most of my oil paintings capture those scenes and memories of life on Long Island's east end. Moonrise over Montauk, Shoreham Summer and Yellow Surfboard are just a few of my paintings of places I love.
Now living along the Chesapeake Bay in Virginia, there are many similarities here that remind me of Long Island. The beauty of the Chesapeake Bay, the salt marshes, the beaches and farmland, are much like Long Island was many years ago. Quiet living on the water, a walk on the dock or a walk or through the woods offer me tendless opportunities to capture the wildlife in our salt marsh, sunsets over the water, and the beauty of my wife's gardens with my camera. I see beauty in all things, God's creations, the simple things, and my work reflects reflects that. My hope is that my viewers will feel what I feel when I paint or photograph a subject. I enjoy using Winsor and Newton oils, both oil and water based mostly on gesso or canvas board. Please note that the Fine Art America watermark will not appear on any purchased items.
