2 things have always been a constant in my life. Love of art and the ocean. The 2 passions brought me to Saint Augustine in 1992 to study Fine Art and Graphic Design at Flagler College, majoring in both.
After years of working in abstract styles, then a hiatus while focusing on design work, I picked up the brush again. This time letting subject matter from idealized scenes of my life become the focus of my artwork.
Travelling to places in search of surf, and just time on the water inspired idyllic maritime scenes, intent on invoking a feeling or memory, with “Light” being the subject of many.

These travels eventually led me to Hawai’i which exposed me to the Asian influenced art of Gyotaku, Japanese for “fish-rubbing”.
Always intriqued by Asian culture, I admired old time Japanese artists’ print making techniques, and as an avid fisherman, Gyotaku seemed like a natural transition and an inspiration to record an event, much like one of my seascape paintings.
Gyotaku’s roots stemmed from the days of pre-taxidermy, but much like now a fisherman wants to brag about his prized catch. Unlike traditional methods, I wanted to apply my painterly technique to create a piece of art, and not just a documentation of a fish. All my fish paintings are caught by your truly, and marked with a kanji stamp meaning “Ocean, love, respect”
because the ocean is our precious resource and it deserves such.

I hope you enjoy my work.
