Welcome to my art page. I'm a self taught artist who works primarily in graphite. I have always been interested in drawing and during the past few years have had the opportunity to devote a little more time to it. Although I do accept commissions most of my drawings are of people and places that have special meaning to me.
I've put together some of my favorite images on this page. Hopefully you will see something that appeals to you or evokes some special memory.
I will be updating this page periodically so please stop by again.
Thank you,

Now On Display

Some of my drawings are currently on display in The Gallery at 254 Sea Street in Dennisport, MA. The three drawings below are some of my works that are on display.

I'd like to give special thanks to my daughter Kim who has always been and continues to be my inspiration, gallery owner Sylvia Matthews who truly has been my "art angel" and all my friends and family for their support and encouragement .

Református Templom, Pácin Hungary

The emigrants kneel in the old
parrish church for the last time..
it may be forever. They scarcely
had known it would be so hard,
the ties of a lifetime to sever.

For the last time they look on the
ivy-clad walls, for the last time
they hear the bells ringing. 'Twas
there they were married, and now to
that church, how fondly their sad
hearts are clinging.

.. author unknown

This church has been a meaningful part
of my family's history since it was built
in the 1800's. It has witnessed the baptism,
marriage and passing of many beloved
family members.

I dedicate this drawing to the memory
of family members that have passed on
and also to honor those that I am blessed
to still have in my life.
