“I have always had a strong draw to life near and on the water and all things nautical. Much of my childhood was spend in Maine, Virginia, the Outer Banks and the Gulf Coast of Florida. That enthusiasm naturally led me to create the next series in my portfolio. I carefully chose local restaurants and hangouts as well as landmarks of both personal and historical significance to capture the essence of coastal life along the Atlantic. Each original sketch is deliberately chosen with the appropriate topographic map or chart to wonderfully tie both fine/graphic arts and location.”
“I will solve your problem for you, and you will pay me. And you don’t have to use the solution – if you want options, go talk to other people. But I will solve your problems for you the best way I know how, and use it or not, that’s up to you – you’re the client but you pay me.”
