Don graduated from Penn State University in 1974 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. He now lives and paints in western North Carolina. Prior to devoting all of his time to painting, Don served as creative director of his own graphic design firm located in Philadelphia for 20 years.
Much of his inspiration comes from life experiences which he then applies to nature scenes with an added twist. The paintings have a colorful vibrancy which seem to tell a story with several plot lines. His paintings have an ethereal quality and offer a moving and personal experience for each individual viewer. There is no right or wrong interpretation.
By using vibrant colors and subtle shapes within shapes, each painting tells a unique story. While viewing his paintings, one will see the invisible, and feel a darkly glowing aura in contrast with the festive celebration of life that all of his paintings exhibit.
Many of his paintings have found homes in private collections in Los Angeles, Phoenix, Myrtle Beach, Alexandria, VA and the Delaware Valley.
