Artist Statement

A native of South Miami he has spent much of his life exploring alone, on or around the water and those elemental moments of sky and water — and the edges between — form the foundation for his exploration as a painter as well. Doug’s expressive compositions and strong respect for light, attempt to say as much about the way a place feels, as the way it looks. His coastal roots and a lifetime designing in a broad range of mediums, drive paintings that push new views of both the expanse and the detail of the coastal landscape.

Based in interpretive realism, his style intentionally and easily departs to explore more abstract or distant characters… usually returning once again to rest comfortably at home. His art is a collection of personal views associated with those experiences — in life and in paint. Easy departure… and constant returns from open exploration to known edges and more familiar horizons.

He holds a Bachelors of Environmental Design and a Bachelors of Architecture from Auburn University and has spent a near 30-year professional career as an architect, designer, visual communication strategist and consultant. He has been painting and drawing since childhood, and his work hangs in private and corporate collections from Seattle to the Bahamas.

Currently, Doug splits his time between Atlanta, Georgia and the coast of Northwest Florida.
