An artist and teacher, he was
Dean of the New England School of Art in Boston for several
years. Most of his life he lived in Smithfield, Virginia but
grew up in New Hampshire where he developed his loose,
impressionistic painting style around his love of animals. For
many years he worked as a commercial artist but became a full
time painter in 1973, frequently exhibiting at the Waterfowl
Festival shows in Easton, Maryland.
