I am constantly creating.


I welcome commissioned work.


I've always ignored popular and "scientific" notions of "left brain / right brain."


I am the former Senior Architect of the Johns Hopkins Health System and Capital Planner and Associate University Architect for Johns Hopkins University. 


I've done time as an environmental engineer and also later as a structural engineer, but both jobs were devoid of color, so I opted out. I spent a lot of time in school to do those things, but I am a self-taught artist.




All paintings are acrylic paint on 1-1/2" deep canvas stetchers. I paint the edges continuous with the front, so no framing is needed. All paintings are UV-varnished and ready to hang with hardware (wire and eyes) attached. One person can handle a 48"x48" painting without too much trouble. They don't weigh much. Unless they're framed, then they weigh as much as a smallish to mid sized dog and you'll need help, especially if you have a rotator cuff situation or a small wingspan.


Here's a lifesize (!) print of Reminiscence 1 in a hospital inpatient unit workroom, with chairs in tragic disarray.  Note the instant liveliness it imparts to an otherwise dreadfully beige room.



I've shown my photography for many years and my work was in the Texas Governor's Traveling Exhibition. I've had images in 10 Johns Hopkins Federal Credit Union calendars and my photo of a Baltimore County farm was on the cover of the 2020 calendar.  See more info here about prints.
