I draw what I know... 

My father was a commercial fisherman and his father was a fisherman...  I learned to love the boats, the smells, the sounds and the people who make their living on the sea.  It's no wonder I look for every opportunity to do charcoal paintings of historic vessels and landscapes along our working waterfronts. 

I hope you enjoy my work, and welcome your thoughts and observations.
