Forever an Artist
2022 and Beyond
Forever an artist, A.D. started drawing at an early age and was introduced to various media and techniques.
The artist’s original paintings have often been featured in magazines and books as masterworks. In addition, his art has been exhibited in galleries from Key West to Hawaii, and he has been a featured artist at ArtExpo in New York City.
In the Spring of 1989, he accepted a position with Hollywood Entertainment dba Hollywood Video stores in Portland, Oregon, to create dozens of large-scale hand-painted murals of movie stars and celebrities for the growing retail giant.
Five years later, A.D. left Hollywood Video and formed a successful graphic design firm in Portland, Oregon’s Pearl District.
During that period, he began producing a series of realistic paintings of iconic American motorcycles and abstract artworks while managing the design firm.
In 2004, he created the first of many life-size and larger realistic art nudes on specially prepared canvas and metal, represented and sold in art galleries coast-to-coast.
His creative imagery busts out of traditional art forms, leaving collectors marveling at his artwork’s power, beauty, and detail.
The very nature of his art provides a lifetime of lasting enjoyment and increasing value for his collectors.
