David is a plein air painter and he travels

Most of his plein-air work features different spots in Annapolis, MD where he currently resides, however he has worked en plein air from all over the country.

His works are included in collections in the United States, Europe, and Asia.

Not only is he a talented artist but he is also an educator who teaches all ages throughout Maryland.

While constantly playing with light, depth, and shadows, David prefers to capture the feeling of his scene with more of a focus on the paint rather than finding the exact color.

David says his work is a type that you can’t label as one specific thing or another, be as it is many styles, and the emotion brought from the painting gives truth to it more than a label ever could.

He is constantly bringing in and utilizing natural light in his paintings to bring specific emotions to life.
