About Bruce

My passion as an artist has been the wonder of experimentation and the thrill of seeing the results of a finished piece. My history as a visual artist has been to play with the medium, to have fun with the subject and composition. I am a big fan of many forms of art. I love to study photo realistic landscapes and wildlife paintings, I am in awe of modern glasswork and am fascinated with bronze sculpture. But when my creative spirit kicks in, I want to paint. I have been defining and redefining my paintings in a continual process in which every completed piece leads to the next. Looking always toward future endeavors ensures that my current work is the best of my ability. Hopefully, my work will always continue to grow and evolve, combining fresh ideas and innovative executions.

I saw Bruce's work at the Columbus Arts Festival, Friday night. I have been thinking about it all weekend! Each painting is a dichotomy; simple, yet complex; sad yet whimsical; both light and dark in nature. I am a fan.

I absolutely love the emotions expressed on the faces of those he painted. They are so striking and displaying emotions like that can be so difficult, especially capturing the look in their eyes. Absolutely amazing.
