Artist's Statement

Self taught oil painter living in suburban Philadelphia. Born and raised in northeast Pennsylvania coal region in the fifties and sixties, he was greatly influenced by small town social bonds and the appreciation of simple daily life. Landscapes from the coal regions as well as portraits of people engaged in everyday life situations dominate his work, which he calls Tin Can Art.
