Robert grew up in a small town in North Carolina. Where he learned a great deal about art and how welcoming people can be in the art community. Having many experiences and growth, he realized he needed to move on and find a new approach. Now Robert lives and works in Austin, Texas.
Robert is a self-taught artist. Dedicated, he has been painting for nearly 20 years. Capturing the look or posture of a person is important in his art. Robert’s style is moody, incorporating humor and a surrealistic feel at times. Along with his figurative work, he has recently worked on a series of animal paintings that are light and fun. “Trying to depict the soul of a creature is challenging and I strive to create paintings that are thought provoking.”
Robert’s work is currently exhibited at Spectrum Gallery in Centerbrook, Connecticut.
