he moved to South Carolina, he began painting daily en plein air or in
his studio on Hilton Head Island.

paintings. He continues to
study privately with Morgan Samuel Price, James Sulkowski and Scott
Burdick, and hone his skills in workshops with plein air painters Matt
Smith, John Budicin, Ken Auster, Ralph Oberg and George Strickland.

Art League and the Society of Bluffton Artists.
His paintings are in private collections in Italy, Germany,
Brazil and in many U.S. cities
Seventeenth century Dutch landscape
artists and eighteenth century painters of the Hudson River Valley
School have definitely influenced his strive to capture atmospheric

color of the low country.
