About the Artist


My favorite aviation subjects are historic aircraft, especially those of the Golden Age of aviation.  Based on archival research and  contemporary photographs, my art documents significant events, aircraft, and individuals in aviation history that are often not well known.

My aviation paintings of the Historic Aircraft of the College Park Airport have been exhibited at the College Park Aviation Museum.
