Originally from Western Pennsylvania, I moved to the Boston area in 1980 to work in the architectural profession and to explore options for graduate school. A few years later I completed a Master of Architecture at MIT and continued on with my architectural career. Fast forward – after almost 40 years in architecture – the last 20+ years as one of the founding partners of MDS/MILLER DYER SPEARS in Boston – I decided to focus my energy on the fine arts – particularly painting.
I am interested in the role light and color play when used to define forms – be they human or city forms. My recent explorations have been on the Boston area – the spaces defined by the ‘big dig’ (The Boston Canyon Series as I call it) and the affect that water (both the Charles River and Boston Harbor) has on defining our urban landscape. I also continue to explore the same principals of light, color, and form in my portrait work.
Hope you enjoy the site. If you wish to inquire about any of the paintings, would like to commission a portrait, or are interested in classes, feel free to drop me a note in the form below.
