This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is from the artist who is a resident of York County, Maine.  He has become known in New England for his watercolors of small Maine and New Hampshire towns.  Often they show deterioration and abandoned buildings.  He also specializes in male and female nudes and floral nature studies and occasionally does a self portrait.
