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.

Production Notes  

Reproductions.  Each original painting is professionally photographed in controlled conditions, followed by proofing procedures to ensure color match and reproduction fidelty, use of only inks considered archival, bright white paper with a brilliance rating of 80 years, and final approval of each and every reproduction by the artist. These are not so-called "limited edtions," but sophisticated high-resolution images printed one at a time.
