About the Artist
Don's first job after graduating from the Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale was creating architectural renderings for a commercial builder.
From there he built his portfolio with graphic design and illustration assignments for printers and ad agencies, ultimately serving as Advertising Director for a major furniture manufacturer. A North Carolina native, Don waited until his retirement to begin painting for fun, returning to the drawing board with a fresh perspective.
"My goal in creating these images is not to imitate other artists or invent a new style. I'm more interested in bringing a smile to someone's face by portraying happy memories and playful themes using bright colors and familiar references."

They share the house, the cars, a dog, three cats, and virtually all meals, but wisely work in separate studios.
