About the Artist

From North Carolina, David has a BFA degree from the East Carolina University School of Art, and has long settled in the Port City. Here, in Wilmington, is where he finds the historic atmosphere and the natural beauty of the Cape Fear River; the creeks and ponds; and the Atlantic coast provide him with limitless sources of artistic inspiration.

Most of David’s work reflects the landscapes of the places where he has lived or visited. Through his interest in art history, his work has absorbed influences such as English watercolors, 19th century engravings, Japanese woodblock prints, Dutch Baroque landscapes, and Van Gogh’s reed pen drawings.

Much of his recent work features wildlife and landscapes seen in the artist’s daily walks. Some of these works are done in color pencil on watercolor paper toned with an ink wash. In the last couple of years, David has worked with monoprints and oil paintings, as well as ink drawings with brush or pen.
