My acrylic and oil paintings explore the realms of texture, color and strength in the portraiture of domestic fowl. My paintings of roosters and chickens show a photo realistic style brought together with an ornate baroque background to illuminate the regal portraiture of the subject matter. My work is in private collections throughout the United States, Europe, Canada, and Asia and has sold in art auctions for several charitable institutions.
Born in 1969 in Pennsylvania, I received a Bachelors of Science in Art Education from Millersville University of Pennsylvania in 1992. I continued my education at The University of the Arts, Philadelphia, and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. During this time I began an interest in the study of the strength and textures of birds, especially domestic fowl.
