Originally from Detroit and a self-taught artist; Robert has lived and worked in Emmet County, Michigan for more than 50 years. Bob started a Sign Design; outdoor advertising business that he owned for 40 years. Bob retired in 2014 and has since devoted his days to his lifelong passion for art whether it be painting, teaching, taking workshops, drawing, or doing research. Predominately a representational artist, Robert has recently begun exploring a contemporary approach using realistic subjects. His goal is to generate works with a clean and minimalist style, keeping his compositions free of extraneous information. Most of his paintings are oil on canvas, which he produces from reference photos and drawings in his studio.
