Awakeandpainting's Shop Announcement

Welcome to my Etsy shop!

My style of painterly realism is the result of my long experience with painting more tightly, which does get dull after a while. The Daily Painting Movement has been a wonderful inspiration for me to work more spontaneously. I also look for inspiration in the work of many modern painters who combine realism with a strong emphasis on abstract design, such as Richard Diebenkorn, Fairfield Porter, Edwin Dickinson and Edward Hopper.

I'm a graduate of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and the University of Pennsylvania. I live and work in a small town about 30 miles north of Philadelphia, and teach many workshops locally.

I enjoy painting in oils from life, concentrating in still life and landscape. To see more of my work please visit my blog at or my website at

Feel free to contact me with any questions you might have.

Payments by personal check, international money order, or PayPal are all acceptable. Paintings will normally be shipped 2-3 business days after payment is received, but if the painting is very new it may need up to seven days to dry. Insurance cost is included in the shipping price.
