Having completed a term as Artist-in-Residence at the William Steeple Davis House, Orient, New York, he has exhibited in East Hampton and King’s Point, New York as well as Mystic, Connecticut. He shows particular attention to research, so that his marine works are noted for their authenticity.
His work has appeared in several publications, including the American periodicals Sea History and Seaport – New York’s History Magazine. His paintings are held in collections in the United States, Japan, and New Zealand, and have been featured on the Discovery Channel.
