About

Originally from Connecticut, I now reside in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Despite the advent of ubiquitous digital photography, painting has persisted, even flourished. Its ability to capture the idiosyncrasies and non-literal aspects of human perception, which are highly cognitive and personal in nature, remains valuable and relevant. Painting persists as the best method of capturing an image within the human experience.

Rooted in realism, my work is driven by a conviction that modern technical methods — mathematics, color science, image processing — can harmonize with traditional methods, producing greater results than either set of methods alone. It seeks to capture the human experience of seeing, to the “greatest and most natural” extent. I divide my time between developing proprietary painting software (see my articles on paint mixing, color decomposition, and focal realism), working in my apartment studio, and painting outdoors.
