Robert is a contemporary artist from the Richmond metropolitan area. His paintings are influenced from his extensive travels throughout Europe, the Middle East and his passion with the beaches, inlets and marshes along the North Carolina coastline. As a life-long sportsman, Robert is inspired by the outdoors, which is reflected in many of his paintings. While he does not consider himself a “landscape” painter, he often describes his works as “accidental landscapes”.
His paintings vary from heavily textured pieces, to oil and cold wax works with translucent layers and subtle textures, to paintings with multiple layers of washes to achieve atmospheric qualities.
A graduate of Atlantic Christian College in Wilson, N.C. with a Graphic Design degree, Robert has served as an Illustrator with the Department of Defense, an adjunct professor teaching Airbrush Illustration at John Tyler Community College and a free-lance Illustrator for Ad agencies and corporate clients throughout Virginia. Robert is a member of the Metropolitan Richmond Artists Association and lives and maintains a studio in Chesterfield, VA.
