I strive to render images that are colorful, compelling, and distinctive. I have dabbled in many media, but at this time, work primarily in colored pencil or oils. I enjoy the freedom that oil painting affords. Colored pencil requires a more disciplined approach and enables me to render fine detail.
I have studied fine art for more than 40 years both in school and with private instructors. I graduated from the University of Maryland with a degree in fine art and a Masters in art history.
After graduation I turned my focus to graphic design and established my own design firm, NMO Design, Inc. I have often incorporated my illustrations into my designs and also have been commissioned independently as an illustrator. Recently I have focused more on traditional fine art.
I have won awards in several shows including the MAA Annual Labor Day show in Kensington and the Annual Strathmore Artists exhibit. I am a member of the Montgomery Art Association and the Colored Pencil Society of America.om that oil painting affords.
