Bob was born in Charleston, South Carolina. Raised on Sullivan's Island, as the grandson of a lighthouse keeper, he enjoyed countless hours gazing out to sea, where he developed his fondness of sketching boats and the ocean. This led to his many school and community art awards. Today, Bob enjoys painting any and all forms of land and sea. Having over 50 years experience, he loves teaching his technique to other painters. All of his paintings are completed in black and white before applying any color, finding this method gives complete control over light values. He hopes you enjoy the paintings as much as he does painting them.
